Judaism, Money, and Health Care

By Elliot N. Dorff

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2004

Dorff reflects on the new challenges we face in the 21st century, as our health care becomes more effective and more costly, debating between conflicting values of extending life at all cost and the rabbinic principle that " the Torah takes pity on Israel's financial resources."
