Medical Ethics Lectures
Often during the year, Rav Binyomin Weiss, Chief Rabbi of Montreal and expert on Medical Ethics gives lectures to both professionals and layman on this very diverse and complicated subject as it pertains to Halacha.
Medical ethics is a fascinating and elaborate system of moral principles that apply values and judgments to the practice of medicine.
As a scholarly discipline, medical ethics encompasses its practical application in clinical settings as well as work on its history, philosophy, and sociology.
Jewish law is involved in every aspect of a Jew’s life, including medical ethics. Rav Weiss has been immersed in these complex and intricate discussions for decades. As such, both doctors and people living in real time with these questions and concerns seek out his expertise.
