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

Marking the 15th anniversary of the passing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory.
Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz brings out for us aspects of end of life halacha.
Rabbi Steinsaltz introduces the Talmud
Rabbi Steinsaltz cites the biblical source from which the Talmud derives the permissibility of a doctor to treat patients.

Rabbi Steinsaltz opens by discussing the definition of the biblical word
Rabbi Steinsaltz discusses the relationship between the Oral and Written Laws. The Oral Law developed as a
Rabbi Steinsaltz elaborates on the various proscribed medicines in the Talmud. He notes that most medicinal treatments recommended are verbal, with little from animal and mineral products. The medicine in the Talmud seemed to remain rather independent from medicine of its surrounding culture (e.g. ...
During an interview with Ted Koppel, Rabbi Steinsaltz shares his experiences talking to children about the infinity of God. Poor quality but still worth a look.
Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz discusses the first element of the Oral Law, the Mishna. He discusses the orderly organization of this large work. He then relates to how the Talmud develops as a commentary on the Mishna.

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 t...
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 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...

How would one decide between giving a heart transplant to an elderly, incompetent criminal and a young...
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 l...
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 cons...
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 psychologicall...
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 ...

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 tow...
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 R...
Rabbi Steinsaltz raises the question of whether a doctor may be sued for mistakes caused by him during treatment. He suggests that if the doctor has religious and human permission to do the work, he cannot be blamed or sued for any damage or death that might result from medical interventions he adm...
Rabbi Steinsaltz argues that only G-d owns the bodies of human beings. If man only has a temporary "lease over his body," does he have the right to injure himself or allow someone else to cause injury to him? The Rabbi suggests that medical treatments that involve some form of injurious side-effect...
