Michal Raucher on Medicine and Religion: Doctors and Rabbis in Israel

Hosted By: Stroum Center for Jewish Studies

The relationship between doctors and rabbis in Israel reflects the complex ways in which medicine and religion interact daily. Although doctors and rabbis can work together to resolve disputes in medical care or improve health care among certain populations, their close relationships can also pose a challenge to quality medical treatment. In this talk Professor Raucher will show how these doctors and rabbis create a context in which Haredi women represent larger competing interests. Instead of working together toward holistic, ethical medical care, doctors and rabbis find themselves locked in a struggle to ensure their interests are secure.
