Jewish Health Care

By Michael Paasche-Orlow

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, February 16, 1996

A medical student reflects on the lack of Jewish spirituality in his profession. He makes the case for infusing medical care with prayer to keep every employee conscious of his or her role and its importance in healing. This prayer is also to benefit patients, who often only receive a brief chaplain visit with a rushed mi sheberach (prayer for the ill) said over them.
