FD - Halacha
Familial Dysautonomia and Jewish Law, by Rabbi Yaakov Eizenbach with help from our experts at the Hadassah Hospital Israeli FD Center, is available in English and in Hebrew.
Since the day-to-day care of FD patients is complex and complicated, and since many of the patients come from Orthodox Jewish families, over the years we have had to deal with the halachic issues arising from treatments carried out on Shabbat and festival days, and other issues connected to the encounter of Halacha and medical treatment. We turned to halachic authorities to consider the problems relating to all aspects of this disease and to provide halachic solutions.
Copies of the book can be purchased from the Dysautonomia Foundation. Call or email us for details.
