    Jewish Biomedical Ethics: COVID and the Allocation of Resources With Rabbi Steven Wernick

    Wednesday, Jan 20th 7:30p to 8:45p
    2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic presented some heart wrenching ethical dilemmas for doctors and front-line workers. Many such similar ethical problems have preoccupied our rabbis and sages for thousands of years. How can their wisdom and understanding help our society navigate these troubled times? Senior Rabbi Steven C. Wernick will discuss the Jewish approach to biomedical ethics and its perspective on the dilemmas presented by the current health crisis.
