In closing his speech,
Rabbi Jakobovits looked for
the day when "Every
human being will not only
be created in the image of
God, but will live in the

The rabbi said that in
some areas, contraception
could be condoned for prob-
lems of over-population.
But for Jews, there is no
over-population; there is a
bigger problem of popula-
tion shrinkage.

Chaikin will be cited for
his "longstanding and un-
swerving support of quality
higher education and
health care delivery in our
society."

birth, the moment the head
emerges into the world, he
told the group. "This new
life then has exactly the
same claim to life as any
other existing human life."
The unborn child has
what Jakobovits calls a
"relative right to life,"
meaning that a living per-
son, the child's mother, has
priority over the life of the
unborn child. An abortion is
allowable only in the case of
a life-threatening situation
for the mother, he said.
Similarly, Jewish med-
ical law condones con-
traception only for
strong medical reasons,
but not for purposes of
convenience.

TO NAME A FEW:

Congregations of the
British Commonwealth,
explained how Jewish law
deals with the problems of
medical ethics in life and
death situations.
He defined human life as
being "infinite in value,"
and because of this infinity,
no human life is worth any
more or less than another
human life.
He said it is the obliga-
tion of every doctor to do
all he can to preserve the
human life, even if the
patient doesn't want to
live. "We are not the
makers of it (our life),
therefore we cannot be
the un-makers of it."
Jakobovits further
stated though, that when
there is no more hope for
a patient, there is no more
need to prolong the
patient's agony with arti-
ficial life-sustaining
methods.
Rabbi Jakobovits also
spoke about death, saying
the value of human life
ceases with death. He de-
fined death as the cessation
of all essential life func-
tions.
Life on the other hand,
starts from the moment of
