MURRAY RUBIN

NEW YORK — Starting
off with the concept that Ju-
daism has a "bias for life" a
group of more than 100 rab-
bis and scholars in related
fields such as law and medi-
cine discussed the "Jewish
View of Life and Death" at
a seminar at the Jewish
Tehological Seminary of
America in New York. The
meeting was held under the
joint auspices of the Rab-
binical Assembly's commit-
tee on bioethics and the
committee on Jewish law
and standards.
At the seminar it was
generally agreed that Jew-
ish tradition would accept
"brain death" as a criterion
of death. Since the cessation
of brain activity also means
the cessation of sponta-
neous breathing and heart
beat, the newer criteria are
not opposed to those found
in traditional Judaism.
The speakers at the semi-
nar - were Rabbi Seymour
Siegel, professor of theology
at the Jewish Theological
Seminary and also chair-
man of the Rabbinical As-
sembly's committee on Jew-
ish law and standards, and
Rabbi Daniel Goldfarb, a re-
cently ordained rabbi, who
is a lecturer on law and as-

Bill Will Protect
Home Synagogues

JERUSALEM (JTA) --
An Aguda MK introduced a
bill in the Knesset that
would bar law suits against
synagogues located in resi-
dential buildings.
The measure, proposed by
Yehuda Meir Abramowitz,
stemmed from a recent case
before a Tel Aviv magis-
trates court where a tenant
group complained that the
noise of prayers in a syn-
agogue on the premises con-
stituted a "public nuisance."
The judge ordered the
congregation to desist from
further use of the flat as a
prayer hall.
Abramowitz said "there
are hundreds of congrega-
tions throughout the coun-
try which because of lack
of sufficient funds had no
choice but to rent quarters
in residential buildings."
He said that very often the
landlords, seeking higher
rentals, sued the congre-
gations on charges of dis-
turbing other tenants.
According to Abramowitz,
his bill would result in
greater efforts by both sides
to settle disputes amicably.
If adopted it would only pro=
tect congregations that rent
a flat with the stated inten-
tion of establishing a syn-
agogue, not those which
rent premises for residen-
tial purposes and subse-
quently turn them into a
prayer hall.

The establishment of
"brain death" as a crite-
rion, said Rabbi Siegel,
was of particular signifi-
cance in the case of trans-
plants. Patients who are
potential donors who are
on respirators or heart
machines, can be tested
for signs of spontaneous
breathing and heart beat
by removing the appara-
tuses for a short while. If

there is no spontaneous the blood of an unburied
respiratory activity and corpse.
there is evidence of brain
death then the patient can

The machines can then be
turned on again "in order to
maintain the freshness of
the organs destined for re-
planting. In continuing
