Join Rabbi Hirsch for an exploration the various texts that our tradition provides to consider the Jewish values involved in the debate regarding Death with Dignity. The Massachusetts legislature is exploring a bill that would allow Massachusetts licensed physicians to prescribe medication, at a terminally ill patient's request, and end that patient's life. Jewish tradition gives guidance, not absolutes, regarding end-of-life decisions.
