A judge forbids an expert witness from wearing his kippah in court because it makes him look too credible and it may influence the jury. A fourteen year-old transplant recipient wants to go off his medication and die because the side effects are too painful. American doctors wonder if they can use Nazi medical research gathered by the torturing of Jewish prisoners in order to save the lives of American pilots. The children of Sol Gordon want to violate his dying wishes in order to move his charitable pledge from the recipient he indicated to a recipient they believe is more 'ethical.'
Each of these cases is drawn from the headlines. Here are real or realistic ethical problems that are submitted to the test of 'Jewish Law' in order to find 'the right solution.' This book contains more than fifty cases and the Jewish responses to each case. It is perfect for both the dinner table and the classroom. Here is a chance to share values, discuss ethics, and take a first look into the Talmud, the codes, and the wisdom of the Jewish legal process.
