Academic Coalition for Jewish Bioethics

Mission and Structure

The Academic Coalition for Jewish Bioethics (ACJB) has merged with the Society for Jewish Ethics (SJE) to become its working group on bioethics.  The working group seeks to engage the Jewish community in considering biomedical decisions. While recognizing that any approach to Jewish bioethics rests on the legacy of inherited norms, values and experience, ACJB advocates the development of a variety of methodologies that bring clarity and authenticity to difficult life choices.
