At a time when medical advances in fertility treatment are being made with unprecedented speed, Jewish couples are finding themselves psychologically and ethically challenged. Overcoming Infertility is an indispensable reference book for couples, rabbis and counselors trying to understand and resolve the complex issues of fertility therapy. This thorough and sensitive work examines contemporary technologies as they relate to halakha, the particular psychological and social issues faced by Jewish couples grappling with infertility, and the intersection of the physical and spiritual aspects of overcoming infertility to give couples the guidance and hope they need to fulfill the profound human desire to have children.
