Reproductive technologies have expanded the opportunities for those struggling with infertility. They have also posed many ethical challenges, and Jewish ethicists have argued over the permissibility of various interventions in reproduction. This talk, sponsored by the departments of philosophy and religious studies and Jewish studies and Temple Beth Sholom, will explore the ethical questions that have arisen in Israel, one of the first countries to legalize gestational surrogacy. Michal Raucher is an assistant professor at the University of Cincinnati.
