On Imminent Death

Rabbi Steinsaltz relates to the topic of imminent death. He defines "Treifah" as a creature, either animal or human, that is almost certain to die within 12 months and says that those in this category are no longer considered completely alive. He touches on the impact this has on the laws of slaughtering and Kashrut as well as medical ethics issues.
