Suffering, Curing, Healing

By Judith Kerman

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, October 13, 1995

Judith Kerman discusses the concepts of suffering and healing within Judaism. She states that suffering can be "healed" but not "cured." Kerman believes healing is a transformative process, rather than simply a comfort mechanism to deal with suffering and in this sense, this process can be much more useful than a cure.
