This review examines how Rosner sees the moral connections and constraints between modern medicine and Jewish philosophy. It gives references from the Talmud, specifically to the patient-doctor relationship and how that is of the highest importance. It also discusses various ethical questions and gives brief interpretations.

From the Paper:

"Dr. Fred Rosner collaborates with Rabbi David Bleich in Jewish Bioethics to bring together nine reknown medical and rabbinic experts from the field of medical sciences and Jewish Law. They address many of the questions and ethical considerations regarding the advances in medical science today (Rosner, 1979). Some of the issues discussed are euthanasia, defining the precise moment of death, "test tube" procreation, abortion, sex-change operations, cloning, genetic engineering, and medical experiments on human subjects. According to Jewish Law, medical science must subordinate itself to the ethical and legal imperatives of the faith (Rosner, 1979)."
