This class will look at the history of vaccinations in the Jewish religious community and analyze the Jewish ethical principles that surround the topic. We will focus on responsibility for one’s self, one’s inner circle, one’s community, the global community at large and the concept of herd immunity and pandemics as they relate to Jewish law. We will focus on treatment options dealing with such issues as availability, distribution, and prophylaxis. This class will also explore Buber’s “I and Thou” as it pertains to the subject matter.
