How do the ethics derived from the Jewish legal tradition respond to the ethical issues raised by the miracle of modern medicine? The Association of Orthodox Jewish Scientists have convened a number of conferences in which leading medical and religious scholars address these questions. Medicine and Jewish Law volume III contains papers presented at one of these conferences. This volume contains articles on infertility, genetics, end of life issues, and other miscellaneous topics written by such leading scholars as Rabbi J. David Bleich, Dr. Fred Rosner, Dr. Abraham S. Abraham, Dr. Mordechai Halperin, and many others.
