Agudath Israel of America has long been an advocate for legislation and protocols which respect the religious views of patients, especially in end-of-life situations. Frequently, we are called upon by individuals to intervene with hospitals, other family members or state agencies to protect the religious rights of a patient. To help educate attorneys about the complicated issues involved in such cases, Agudath Israel of America Legal Support Services will host a class on end-of-life issues on August 18th.

The featured speakers will be Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz, Attorneys Mark Kurzmann and Jonathan Rikoon, Dr. Marcel Biberfeld of Maimonides Hospital and Dr. Howard Leibowitz of Speciality Hospital of Central New Jersey. Attorneys can receive Continuing Legal Education credits for attendance. The program will focus on the legal, halachic, and medical aspects of end-of-life cases and care.  For more information, please see the flyer below or call 212-797-9000 extension 267.
