Jewish Ethics and the Care of End-of-Life Patients offers a comprehensive compendium of opinions concerning our right to life, the quality of life and the meaning of life itself. Concerning itself with such topics as assisted death versus assisted suicide; terminal illness in children; empathy towards the incurably ill; and all manner of issues, laws and attitudes about death and dying, the book is an indispensable companion for the professional or laypersonin short, anyone and everyone who is interested in the passage from life to death.
Consisting of chapters written by such respected authorities as Maurice Lamm, J. David Bleich, Vardit Ravitsky, Shimon Glick and Avraham Steinberg, Jewish Ethics and the Care of End-of-Life Patients is relevant and required reading for a broad swath of the general public.
Representing a variety of views and religious orientations, the book's potential to bridge disparate communities is also invaluable. Informative yet accessible, the book can function both as a support for the individual or family faced with the imminent loss of a loved one and as the catalyst for important discussion and debate within a religious, medical or academic setting.
Jewish Ethics and the Care of End-of-Life Patients is that rare book that invites its readers to enter into a relationship with its subject matter whose relevance cannot be denied.
