Jewish Healing?

By Simkha Y. Weintraub

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, May 27, 1994

Many Jews often forget that their own tradition holds a rich repertoire of stories, prayers, psalms, and literature to help those who are sick, dying, or suffering in any way. The Jewish Healing Center is an example of blending emotional support and Judaism. Hopefully it will forge a means of connecting more Jews to their faith not only during vulnerable situations, but in general as well.
