Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim is blessed with a membership of the most talented of individuals from around the globe. Included in this group are representatives from almost every specialty of the medical field.

Feeling that there is a need for physicians and other healthcare professionals to facilitate the obligation of individuals to take good care of the bodies, as well as the souls, with which the Creator has endowed them, Rabbi Dr. Yehudah Mordechi Gardin has, in cooperation with the Shema Yisrael Torah Network, created the Mishmeres Guf site. This site is intended to be a portal for useful medical information from which everyone can benefit, as well as for articles and other communications which address topics related to Jewish medical ethics and related halacha. We invite all our members in the medical field to send in their contributions to
