PUAH Conference on Fertility, Medicine And Halacha

“Puah Family” is not a household name in most Jewish homes. However, for Sarah and Joel Zhontag, Puah is “a miracle working organization.”

This statement, and many more like it, are the background for the upcoming Third Annual PuahFamily conference on “Building A Healthy Jewish Family: Fertility, Medicine and Halacha” on Sunday, November 16, 2014 at the Fifth Avenue Synagogue, NYC.

For the past 25 years, Puah has earned a reputation for its expertise as the leader in the world of Jewish Fertility. Servicing Jewish families worldwide, Puah provides counseling, advocacy, fertilization supervision, research and community education regarding family building.

Co-sponsored by Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future, the Puah conference will feature presentations by prominent medical experts and leading rabbis recognized for their ongoing contributions to both fertility and halacha.

Lectures and round-table discussions will focus on the interface of cutting-edge medical advances, Jewish law and ethics regarding a wide array of topics including: “Genetic Testing,” “Fertility Preservations,” “Single Embryo Transfer” and more. Participants will also hear presentations on “Building a Thriving Marriage,” and the “Emotional Impact of the Fertility Journey.” Rabbi Dr. Edward Reichman, Associate Professor at Einstein College of Medicine, prominent authority in the field of Jewish medical ethics, and member of the advisory board of the Institute for Genetics and Public Policy, will deliver the Opening Address. He will be joined by world renowned physicians affiliated with Mt. Sinai Hospital, Cornell Medical Center, and Montefiore Medical Center specializing in male and female fertility, woman’s health, and clinical therapy. Among them will be Dr. Nicole Schreiber-Agus, Dr. Natan Bar-Chama, Dr. Sara Barris, Dr. Scott Chudnoff, Dr. Martin Freedman, Dr. Marc Goldstein, Dr. Lawrence Grunfeld, Dr. Joshua Klein, Dr. Harry Lieman, Esther Schwartz, and Rabbi Yaakov Kermaier.

Also featured will be Rabbi Gideon Weitzman and Rabbi Eli Lewis, two of Puah Family’s rabbinic experts in fertility guidance and counseling. Rabbi Weitzman recently returned from Hawaii where he delivered a research paper at the 2014 conference of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).

The Puah Family conference is made possible through the generosity of Ferring Pharmaceuticals, the cooperation of the Jewish Press, and the hosting of the Fifth Avenue Synagogue, NYC.

The conference program will be held from 9:15 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. For more information on FREE REGISTRATION call 718-336-0603 or visit [email protected]. Registration is requested, refreshments and lunch will be included.
