Ethical Dilemmas Course Spiritgrow

By Rabbi Laibl Wolf

This course will discuss the application of Jewish ethics and principles to issues relating to health and wellness in society. Ranging from the difficult problem of triage, choosing who to treat and who to let die in hospital wards, the course will also look at whether governments have obligations to legislate laws for the public wellbeing, e.g. compulsory vaccinations. It will also question whether a universal notion of ethics actually exists.
