For the first two weeks of the second semester, the entire Rabbi Moshe H. Levinson Upper School of Berman Hebrew Academy wrestled with an ethical-religious dilemma in their Talmud/Rabbinics classes that created a buzz and energy around their Judaics learning.
The case involved a dilemma based on an actual medical event from 1977. Conjoined twins were born to an Orthodox Jewish couple and they shared one six-chambered heart. They could not live more than a couple of weeks in this state. Can you take the heart and put it in one of the babies, giving them a chance to live a regular life, but also ending the life of the other?
