A Jewish Perspective on the Justina Pelletier Case

There is a Jewish saying that all doctors spend time in Gehinnom. (A rough translation of this term in Christian mainstream parlance  would be “purgatory”.) Why is this so?

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore

THOU hast made me known to friends whom I knew not. Thou hast given me seats in homes not my own. Thou hast brought the distant near and made a brother of the stranger. I am uneasy at heart when I have to leave my accustomed shelter; I forgot that there abides the old in the new, and that there also thou abidest.
Through birth and death, in this world or in others, wherever thou leadest me it is thou, the same, the one companion of my endless life who ever linkest my heart with bonds of joy to the unfamiliar. When one knows thee, then alien there is none, then no door is shut. Oh, grant me my prayer that I may never lose the bliss of the touch of the One in the play of the many.

Rabindranath Tagore (Gitangeli)
