Jewish Bioethics in Time of COVID

April 28 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until May 5, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has raised a host of problem for bioethics, the field charged with negotiating ethical dilemmas in health care. This three-session course will examine some of these dilemmas as they pertain to the Jewish community, broadly defined. We will begin with a discussion of how Jewish leaders have attempted to negotiate the at times tense relationship between ritual adherence, public health, and religious freedom. We will then examine how Jewish religious sources might provide a different perspective on ongoing debates about the rationing of scarce medical resources. And we will conclude with a discussion of how coronavirus-related health care decisions have been negotiated in the Israeli-Palestinian relationship. Participants from all backgrounds are welcome.

aught by Harold Braswell, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Health Care Ethics at Saint Louis University
Each weeks topic:
1. on COVID and religious freedom in the Jewish community
