With the recent Supreme Court decision on doctor assisted suicide, many of us are thinking about end of life issues.

We are bringing together legal and medical experts to help us have these important and often difficult discussions in a Jewish context.

We welcome experts from Jewish, legal, and medical perspectives to discuss many of the issues involving this important conversation, including:

  • Jewish Values and End of Life
  • Advance Care Planning
  • Palliative Care
  • Physician Assisted Death
  • Continuous Palliative Sedation
  • Patient Rights/Autonomy
  • Physician rights
  • Family Conflict in End of Life Care

Moderated by Dr. Harvey Schipper, Oncologist, professor of medicine at the University of Toronto, past-President Holy Blossom Temple
