Israel was not created in order to disappear—Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom.  -  President John Kennedy
     
 

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: Life's Value: Moral and Ethical Dilem
Rabbi Steinsaltz continues the topic of how to prioritize lives that can be saved. He questions whether the concept of another's life taking precedence over one's own life is necessarily ethical. How would one decide between giving a heart transplant to an elderly, incompetent criminal and a young, intelligent, and kind person?

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: A Doctor's Duty
Rabbi Steinsaltz discusses the permissibility of a doctor to strike. May doctors who are underpaid and overworked refuse to treat those in need of medicine? The Rabbi concludes by comparing an approach to medical ethics in which conclusive decisions are made to an approach in which decisions are left "up in the air" and to the discretion of the patient and family.

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: To Whom Does Life Belong?: Self-Harm
Rabbi Steinsaltz raises the question of to whom does life belong. He discusses how the concept of man being created in the image of G-d places limits on the rights one has over one's body. The Rabbi compares this concept to modern socio-political theories in which society owns the lives of its constituent population. He also discusses the ramifications this question has on one's right to harm oneself, analogizing the situation to a soldier who is prohibited from causing self-harm due to this being considered "damage to army property."

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: To Whom Does Life Belong? Self-Harm P
Continuing his discussion of to whom life belongs, Rabbi Steinsaltz illustrates certain common examples in society in which we witness groups of people making decisions that directly influence the lives of others. Does society, for instance, have any rights to sterilize physically and psychologically ill people if it expects the descendents of these people to suffer and place great demands on society?

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: Healing: Natural Selection vs. Human
Rabbi Steinsaltz asks whether we should just allow nature to take its place and select out the strongest from society or we should treat medical illnesses through human intervention. Though the Bible and Talmud seem to indicate that medical treatment is permissible, the Rabbi cites several biblical and midrashic sources that suggest that medical treatment may lead the ill to neglect to seek G-d's healing. The Rabbi cites Maimonides' reconciliation of some of these sources.

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: Healing: Natural Selection vs. Human
Rabbi Steinsaltz cites R' Nachman from Breslav's complex opinion regarding the advisability of seeking medical treatment. The Rabbi suggests that ill people should indeed seek medical treatment and quotes a source from the Talmud supporting this idea which states that people should not live in a town that does not have a doctor. He concludes by arguing that rather than being viewed as a destroyer of nature, man should be viewed as having an obligation to perfect nature.

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: Healing as a Mandate: A Doctor's Call
Rabbi Steinsaltz discusses the influence of a doctor's obligation to heal on the permissibility of a doctor to strike, to receive payment, and to retire. He suggests that there is no obligation to study medicine, but once one has the knowledge one is obligated to use it to treat those in need. The Rabbi concludes by citing a Talmudic source that suggests that a doctor that is paid will have greater incentive to develop his knowledge.

How do Kosher Jews treat the name of God?

[ Answer? ]

The name of God in any language is in and of itself holy, and Jewish law forbids its destruction. Consequently, many Jews will spell it in unusual ways such as G-d. Our Rabbinical advisors permit us to type out the name because on a computer monitor the image of words does not have the solidity and permanence of a document. However, we have been cautioned to ask you not to print out materials that have such a name on them, unless you are prepared to dispose of such a page in the proper manner. (Burial of such pages is best.)
