Abstract
This article first examines six fundamental Jewish convictions that affect end-of-life care. It then discusses Advance Directives. This is followed by an extensive section on the details of end-of-life care as from the perspective of Jewish law, tradition, and theology. This includes defining death, foregoing life-sustaining treatment, artificial nutrition and hydration, curing the patient and not the disease, pain control and palliative care, medical experimentation and research, and social support of the sick. The last section discusses care of the deceased, including Jewish norms about burial, cremation, autopsies, organ and tissue donation, and donating one’s body to science.
