Episode 20: Fertility – A Science and Halakha Teshuvah about Testicular Biopsy

by Rabbi Dov Linzer (Posted on January 7, 2019)

(The teshuvah is EH 2-3) Rabbi Linzer looks at a teshuvah about whether a testicular biopsy for the purpose of aiding a man’s fertility makes him a petzuah daka – injured in a way that would prohibit him from marrying. Along the way, Rav Moshe makes astonishing claims about the relationship between science and halakhic change.
