International Responsa Project

When a person, be it physician, patient or family member, faces a situation such as medical procedures raising ethical and moral dilemmas, or supposed contradiction with halacha, both practical and theoretical – advice from a reliable source is essential. The IRP was created to answer this need and offer this halachic support.

Modern technology and communication is increasing and developing at an astonishing rate and as medical science progresses, new ethical and moral problems arise. Finding solutions and answers to practical medical halachic questions can be an arduous, complex and time consuming task.

This unique service, an evolvement of our telephone hotline service and the first of its kind in the world, will allow you to pose any medical-halachic question and receive rapid, clear halachic answers, guidance and solutions.

All questions will be immediately transferred to one of our panel of selected rabbanim and doctors and a halachic response will be given based on their ruling.
