Puah Institute: A Pristine Legacy Deserving Acclaim

Markovitz-012712

Puah has nothing to hide, nor is there anything that warrants apology, contrition, clarification or vindication. Everyone who participated in the past eleven annual conferences appreciates their high caliber, their forum and program. As a matter of fact, the annual Puah Conference has become “the place to be” – the place to be seen and to network for more than a thousand concerned professionals who care about the plight of individuals who want to have a baby.

Indeed, the men and women who devoted time and talent to this year’s Conference formed a rainbow of medical and cognate professionals who gained state-of-the-art knowledge that will hopefully enhance their ability to improve the quality of life of other men and women suffering the pains of infertility.

This care and concern transcends any ephemeral civic angst, trendy protests, cultural struggles or religious/secular feuds that have recently flared up in Israel. Sadly, super-imposing these controversies on the high caliber Puah Conference raises questions about the sincerity of the detractors.

Puah will continue to emulate the example set by Moshe Rabbeinu, who despite his impediment redeemed his people from personal plight and national suffering. Puah will not let the latest indiscriminate finger-pointing detour it from its course. Instead it will continue to earn its laurels through cost-free services to individuals and couples who seek its guidance and assistance to overcome their personal plight of infertility and the emotional suffering that infertility brings.

In sum, Puah will remain true to its mission by continuing to build hundreds of new and happy Jewish families every year.

The recent brouhaha surrounding the Puah Institute Conference in Jerusalem (the distinguished panel of speakers did not include women) completely missed the point. In a typical rush to judgment, the media and other detractors turned a heretofore non-issue into an outcry over discrimination, and therein lies the rub.
