Patient Autonomy in the Dying Process: A Jewish Perspective


The Annual Ben Zion and Baruch M. Bokser Memorial Lecture, this discussion features Dr. Daniel Sinclair, Wolff Fellow in Jewish Law and visiting professor of Law, Fordham University Law School, New York City; and professor of Jewish Law and Comparative Biomedical Law, Haim Striks School of Law at the College of Management – Academic Studies (COMAS), Rishon LeZion, Israel.

Dr. Sinclair explores Rabbi Moses Feinstein’s approach to establishing an appropriate balance between the strong Jewish legal mandate to preserve life and the value of maximizing patient autonomy. Rabbi Feinstein’s biblical and talmudic sources, as well as the philosophical and ethical implications of his theory for end-of-life issues in Jewish and comparative law, are discussed.
