Editorial Reviews

Fred Rosner
This book serves as a valuable introduction for the layman to the rapidly growing field of Jewish medical ethics. In precise and lucid language, Rabbi Shulman describes basic principles in the Jewish tradition as they relate to the practice of medicine. His insights and articulate presentation of Jewish answers to a wide variety of medical ethics questions posed to the Office of Britain's Chief Rabbi make this book a worthwhile addition to the literature of the acknowledged discipline of Jewish medical ethics, which was pioneered by the Chief Rabbi Emeritus, Lord Immanuel Jakobovits.
