Medical Halakhah.

Various studies on Medical Halakhah from our recent acquisition in Jewish medicine. Some works are general and some are quite specific. There is clearly no consensus on the correct transliteration of the work Halakhah. As opposed to another imminent post that will offer books with more patient oriented texts this selection is primarily of interest to Rabbis, medical professionals and scholars. Quantities vary. All can be ordered through the hollanderbooks website. A full list of our holdings in the area of Jewish Medicine you can find the list here.
