Death in a Medicalized Age: Halakhah, Ritual, and Ethics in Transition
Ari Schick / July 20, 2015
The manner in which we encounter death today has changed radically compared to past centuries, which has shifted the way in which death is discussed from the realm of the spiritual, concerned with the soul, to that of the technical, concerned with the functioning of the body. This recording is the second session of a five session course.
