Cultivating the Soul

By Rachel Cowan

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), March 2009

The author urges the importance of finding ways to promote the spiritual formation, development and nurturance of rabbis, such as in mitigating burnout and compassion fatigue. In communities that demand accountability and transparency, where humility is cultivated and honored, where rabbis are given the tools and time to practice self-care, they can more often align their talents and strengths in service to the community and to God, rather than to their own ego.
