Is the value of human life paramount? Who should make decisions about endangering human lives — experts or the individuals whose lives are at stake? This talk focuses on a talmudic passage that presents three models of thinking about these questions, exploring the values that are at stake for the rabbis and showing how this debate continued to reverberate over subsequent generations.

The Renee and Alexander Bohm Memorial Lecture
Given by Dr. Ayelet Libson
