LSJ Lox and Learn: Jewish Bioethics

Wednesday, October 5, 2016, 12:30 pm - 1:20 pm

LSJ students are invited to speak with Hadar Khazzam-Horovitz about Jewish Bioethics.

This lecture will explore Jewish-religious perspectives on contemporary biomedical issues. It will focus on some of the key differences between secular and Jewish approaches in interpretation and application of medical ethics. The topics to be discussed include: doctor-patient relationship; euthanasia; and stem cell research. The goal is to promote important discussion of alternative perspectives to ethical evaluations and practices.

Note: The opinions expressed by faculty, students, and invited speakers at public events reflect the views of the individual speaker only and not those of the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies.
