For the 2018 Moot Beit Din competition, students explored the topic of bone marrow transplant.  Students were asked to determine whether Michael, a perfect bone marrow match is obligated to donate his marrow to Judy, who is battling cancer, even if Michael has a blood clotting disorder, which makes donating a health risk.  Students also explored whether Michael should be financially compensated, and by who if he chose to donate. You can read the full case here.

Mazel tov to the first and second place teams in each division, and to all of the teams for their commitment to Torah learning and participation in the 2018 Moot Beit Din competition.
