Healing in Halacha, Volume 2
The discussions begin with “What are the parameters of the obligation to guard health?” but don’t end there. This incredible work — the fruit of years of specialization in medical halachah by Rabbi Micha Cohn — covers a wide range of topics, such as preserving health and safety, mental health, technology, genetics, end-of-life issues, and much more.
In his encyclopedic and engaging style, Rabbi Cohn finds sources, parallels, and examples from the length and breadth of Jewish life and scholarship to illustrate contemporary questions and issues. Though extremely practical, Healing in Halachah is not a common guide to medical halachah; it is a unique, thought-provoking overview and appreciation of these complex issues. Of great interest to patients, caregivers, and medical professionals, this valuable work is an indispensable resource to all those fascinated with Torah guidance in the realms of medicine and mental health.
“The purpose of this work is to open the eyes of the reader…and give direction as to when and how to present questions to a halachic authority.”
Rabbi Reuven Feinstein, Rosh Yeshiva, Yeshiva of Staten Island
“Truly an amazing work!”
Rabbi Dovid Cohen, Rav, Bais Medrash Gevul Yaavetz
“This is an important work, written with great depth, especially [regarding] end of life according to halachah.”
Rabbi Noach Issac Oelbaum, Rav, Kahal Nachlas Yitzchok
Rabbi Micha Cohn is the rav of Bais Medrash Kol Yaakov of Oakley Hills in Jackson, New Jersey, a maggid shiur at the Mesivta of Long Beach, and a posek for Kof-K Kashrus Supervision. Rabbi Cohn has a longstanding interest in halachah relating to medicine and mental health. As a close talmid of Rav Dovid Feinstein, zt”l, he had the opportunity to discuss many intricate questions in medical halachah with the rosh yeshiva. In 2012, Rabbi Cohn started a medical halachah email for medical and mental health providers. In 2016, the emails were adapted into Healing in Halachah, volume 1, and was published by Mosaica Press. This is the second volume in this series.
