I enjoyed very much and learned a lot about subjects I hadn’t even realized were controversial. Thank you Rabbi Tatz for sharing your wealth of knowledge in this complex and crucial area of halacha and Torah ethics.”

I really enjoyed the program. The subjects were really interesting as well as the clear way Rabbi Tatz presented the issues and dilemmas.”

I wish to thank Rabbi Tatz for the totally engaging classes he presented on Medical Ethics and Jewish Law. I watched on demand ( a very convenient arrangement) as I was at work at 3 pm here in NYC. As an Adult and Geriatric Nurse Practitioner … I have frequently encountered situations that you addressed in your classes.”

The program is excellent. Rabbi Dr. Akiva Tatz holds the attention of the listener to the point that one sits at the edge of the seat in anticipation- waiting for the questions he poses and the subsequent answers. In two words : Awe Inspiring.”

It was very good and enlightening. Being an RN, and having studied secular medical ethics, and nit knowing anything about Jewish Medical Ethics or Halacha, this was great. I realize that we just touched on some of the basics, but it was enough to let me know how to better respond from a Jewish perspective and especially where the secular differs. Being in the US, this last point has been very important for me.”
