Letter to the Editor Regarding Vaping Article

Rabbi Yehuda Spitz


To the Editor, I am writing in response to Dr Sharon Galper Grossman’s recent fascinating article, “Vape Gods and Judaism—E-cigarettes and Jewish Law.”1 The author extrapolates from rabbinic literature regard-ing combustible cigarettes and suggests that the preliminary data establishing the dangers of e-cigarettes, and the government warnings against usage, would render these products prohibited under Jewish law, especially for youth and pregnant women.
