Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: Man's Responsibility to Heal
Rabbi Steinsaltz cites the biblical source from which the Talmud derives the permissibility of a doctor to treat patients. He then discusses the related topic of whether a doctor is indeed obligated to treat patients. He questions whether such an obligation would influence a doctor's permission to receive payment for administering medical treatment and a doctor's permission to refuse to treat patients in need of medicine.

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: Finding Directives Within the Talmud
Rabbi Steinsaltz discusses the general nature of Talmudic directives as a segue into his discussion of the Jewish approach to medical ethics questions. Comparing Talmudic Law to English Law, he describes how the Talmud focuses legal discussions around specific precedent cases. The Rabbi says that the Talmud consists of disagreeing statements on many topics spread throughout its pages and that in approaching current medical ethics questions one must piece together all of these statements in order to arrive at solutions.Rabbi Steinsaltz discusses the value of human life in Judaism, a value that takes precedence over almost every other commandment. He suggests that this value serves as a foundational principle off of which many medical ethics discussions build.

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."
