Excellent guide to Halachic issues in healthcare settings by Rabbi Jason Weiner

Feb 21, 2013   //   by KosherSwitch   //   News, Press-Related  //  No Comments

Rabbi Jason Weiner has authored an excellent guide to Halachic issues in healthcare settings.  His ”Guide to Traditional Jewish Observance in a Hospital” contains valuable information and rulings covering a broad range of topics typically encountered in hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities.  The guide may be downloaded here.

 

Rabbi Jason Weiner, BCC is a board-certified chaplain and serves as the Senior Rabbi and Manager of the Spiritual Care Department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

 

All contents of this work have been carefully reviewed by:
Rabbi Gershon Bess, shlit”a
Rav of Congregation Kehillas Yaakov & Chaver Beit Din of the Rabbinical Council of California
Rabbi Nachum Sauer, shlit”a
Yeshiva of Los Angeles, Dayan & Chaver Beit Din of the Rabbinical Council of California
Rabbi Yosef Y. Shusterman, shlit”a
Rav of Chabad of Beverly Hills & Member of the Beit Din of the Vaad Rabbonim Lubavitch
This booklet is designed to assist people observing traditional Jewish Law while undergoing medical treatment, particularly in the complex and unfamiliar environment of a hospital. Patients often have a difficult time orienting themselves to unfamiliar circumstances and may encounter questions that they have not previously faced. Furthermore, they may be unable to seek rabbinic counsel (on Shabbat and Festivals for example – the subject of much of this booklet), and are thus in search of guidance. Caregivers also frequently have questions regarding what Jewish Law has to say about patient care and the many issues they face when striving to do what is best for their patients.
