    Course Overview
    Decisions of Fate: 
    Your Jewish Compass for Navigating Questions of Medical Ethics

    Explore the guiding Jewish values that help inform choices on common medical questions. This course will equip students with the tools to chart a path through four areas of medical ethics: experimental treatments, extending life, pregnancy questions, and caring for a body. Gain an enriching perspective on how the Jewish ethical tradition helps us confidently navigate fateful decisions.

    Lesson Outline

    LESSON ONE
    Experimental Treatments

    When emerging treatments offer hope of recovery, when is the risk justified? Discover the Jewish ethics of risking your life in the hope of extending your long-term prospects.
     

    LESSON TWO
    Extending Life

    How does Judaism balance the desire to preserve life with concerns of reducing suffering? See how Jewish values inform a dignified approach to end-of-life care and advance medical directives.
     

    LESSON THREE
    Pregnancy Questions

    Explore questions of pregnancy through the lens of Jewish texts. Is a fetus a human life, or a part of the mother's body? When pregnancy endangers a woman's life, may she, in good conscience, carry the pregnancy to term?
     

    LESSON FOUR
    A Body's Dignity

    Might autopsy violate the dignity of the human body? Learn the Jewish view on the respect to which the deceased is entitled and how the sanctity of human life continues after death.
