Medical Aid In Dying (MAiD):  Jewish Perspectives
What does a good death look like? What does Judaism have to say about “a good death?"
MAID, also known as Physician Assisted death, is now legal in  Colorado and 8 additional states-California, Hawai’i, Maine, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. It is also legal in the District of Columbia and Canada.
While traditionally Reform, Conservative and Orthodox streams forbid "assisted suicide," both the Reform and Conservative Movements, in recent years,  have changed their positions. In this 3 session class we will read and discuss the Reform Movements 2022 Teshuvah on MAID and the Conservative Movements' 2020  (Rabbinic Rulings) on MAID. We will also have the opportunity to hear from a Jewish Hospital Chaplain with first hand knowledge and experience of MAID.

TIME: 12:30 - 2 p.m
