One of the most elegant aspects of Judaism is its timelessness. For several millenia any Jew faced with a halakhic dilemma could turn to the Talmud and get a ruling appropriate for the time in which he or she was living. If that was not enough, learned rabbinic scholars have issued responsa to help decide questions not specifically addressed in the Oral or Written Law. Long before there were questions regarding automobiles, elevators and telephones, there were Talmudic answers waiting to be heard.
Medicine is perhaps the most evolved field of study since the time of the sages, and with it the need for contemporary halakhic interpretation. In the past 25 years, as medical technology to overcome infertility has advanced, the need for a Jewish perspective has marched alongside.
To help infertile Jewish couples, Grazi has published Overcoming Infertility, a comprehensive volume that seamlessly combines chapters on anatomy and physiology with Mishnah and Midrash. There are scholarly discourses on all medical and legal aspects of conception and delivery, and readers can easily peruse those chapters that are most relevant to their particular needs. The scientific chapters are easy to understand, and the rabbinic chapters are enlightening and well-referenced; the book functions well for Talmudic scholars and laypeople alike, and offers successful solutions for medical and halakhic obstetric controversies.
It is the only source couples will need to help them fulfill the very first of the 613 commandments: Be fruitful and multiply.
