About the event

Is assisted suicide a legitimate course of action for an individual who endures tremendous suffering? What form of medical care should be provided to terminally ill patients?

This lesson establishes the fundamental Jewish belief that human life is sacred, and that each moment of life pulsates with spiritual purpose and potential beyond its scientific measure. Jewish law prohibits assisted suicide and any act that directly invites death. At the same time, the

Jewish approach also seeks to ameliorate pain and suffering, and points to instances in which we have no halachic obligation to administer certain treatments to terminally ill patients.

This lesson provides practical spiritual tools for those facing end-of-life hardships, and guidance on supplying advance medical directives to ensure a patient receives treatment that accords with their moral and religious beliefs.
