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: Death with a Kiss
Rabbi Steinsaltz discusses the question of whether we may terminate the life of a suffering, dying patient in order to relieve him of his pain. He states that we must attempt to save life even when there is great uncertainty that there is a life to be saved and when we would likely only succeed in prolonging life by one minute. The Rabbi concludes by introducing the Talmudic concept of "Death with a Kiss."

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: Defining Death
Rabbi Steinsaltz contrasts the traditional definition of death (cessation of heartbeat) with the relatively novel definition of death known as brain-death. He discusses the significant practical ramifications these definitions have on organ donation; many more organs can be harvested from a corpse if brain-death is accepted as the halakhic definition of death.

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: The Body as a Vehicle for the Mind
Rabbi Steinsaltz delves into the relationship between the mind and the body. He compares it to the relationship between a fiddler and a fiddle. Arguing that the brain is the mechanical "vehicle" that does the thinking associated with the mind, the Rabbi suggests that the brain and mind are interdependent, with neither functioning fully without the other.
