Dr. Avraham Steinberg, noted author, Director, Medical Ethics Unit at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem, and co-chairman, the Israeli National Council on Bioethics "Rabbi Weiner sanctifies the Name of God daily in his holy work, and frequently consults with me in complicated Halakhic questions . . . this book is very well organized and I'm certain it will be very useful." Rav Asher Weiss, halakhic authority in Jerusalem, author, head of Minchas Asher institutions "Although Weiner defines this book as an introduction, I found each chapter rich in its content and detail . . . . each topic is handled with care and extreme sensitivity, and it is obvious that a vast amount of research went into producing this substantive work."

Stuhlman, AJL Reviews STARRED REVIEW: "This sterling conclusion to an impressive fantasy epic will leave readers cheering." www.publishersweekly.com "In general, this book is well worth purchasing and perusing for anyone interested in modern health care and Halakhah....It's very likely that the book will be read, appreciated, and used not just by rabbis and poskim, but by healthcare professionals, families, and patients as well." Zackary Sholem Berger, www.thelehrhaus.com/ "Rabbi Jason Weiner, a hospital chaplain and synagogue rabbi, combines real-world experience with extensive research to provide an overview of Jewish approaches to a wide range of medical issues. Rabbi Weiner writes for patients, rabbis and medical professionals. He therefore uses sympathetic and non-technical language that respects the patients' experiences and provides easily understood options, supplemented by endnotes with extensive citations... He suggestsrather than try to convince patients and family that their preference is wronglisten to them and empower them by offering options that provide them with the control and independence they desire. In a broader context, this is wise advice for dealing with anyone seeking religious guidance." Rabbi Gil Student, jewishaction.com
