Overview

Your friend is drowning in the lake. Do you go save him? What if it might be dangerous for you? Mah La'Asot—What Should I Do? is a series of ethical puzzles. It is a perfect introduction to Jewish law for your students.

Mah la'Asot is a book of ethical puzzles and Jewish responses. Students confront a series of moral dilemmas and encounter core Jewish values, such as Tzar Ba'alei Hayyim and Pikuah Nefesh. In the process, they address the legal principles surrounding questions of abortion, suicide, AIDS, euthanasia, use of animals in medical research and more.
