Melton Session: MEDICAL ETHICS (#42017)

Within the field of ethics, one of the most challenging frontiers is medical ethics.  While contemporary medical knowledge preserves life, modern advances have raised moral and ethical dilemmas related to the sanctity and dignity of life –issues whose scope was unimaginable a generation ago.   A new ten-lesson Melton course on Jewish Medical Ethics explores what Judaism has to say on a number of challenging issues, including human cloning, surrogate motherhood, transsexual surgery, assisted suicide, heroic efforts, and genetic manipulation

Fee: $100 individual; $150 for a couple (includes one book)

Melton Classes are co-sponsored with the MJCCA Lisa F. Brill Istitute for Jewish Learning and the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Tuesdays 7:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m.

Join us for this educational program sponsored by the Beth Shalom Sisterhood. Class begins on Tuesday evening, September 4, 2018.

Chai Mitzvah is an adult Jewish engagement initiative, asking the question, “What do you want your adult Jewish life to look like?” and guides participants in answering that question through study, spirituality and social action.

Embarking on our fourth year, we are inviting all former students of Chai Mitzvah to sign up for this year’s program. The content will be different and even though some of the subjects are universal, each month we will have a different “flavor” to the curriculum.

Class will meet monthly throughout the year in the Beth Shalom Chapel from 7:30 pm to 8:45 pm.

The fee is $10 per person which covers all materials. Our goal is to educate, enlighten, and encourage our participants to learn and to act upon those values and spiritual beliefs that create the total person.

For more information, contact Marsha Fish at



On the first of each Jewish month, women around the world gather for learning and spiritual exploration. Join other women for a time of renewal and celebration. The group will determine each month’s programming. 

Our first meeting will be held on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan, Wednesday evening, October 10th. Meetings will take place monthly on Rosh Chodesh.
