How to answer ethical problems in Judaism


"To be sure, not all bioethical problems are questions of black and white. There are many gradations of gray, questions to which answers are not immediately and intuitively available. A person who seeks to find answers within the Jewish tradition can deal with such questions in only one way. He must examine them through the prism of Halakhah for it is in the corpus of Jewish law as elucidated and transmitted from generation to generation that Gd has made His will known to man."

(Rabbi J. David Bleich, Introduction, Jewish Bioethics, pg. xix)

Have a great day,
