Illness and Recovery: A Jewish Halachic Perspective

By Ruben Schindler

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1977

This paper will explore illness and recovery in light of a Jewish Halachic and philosophical perspective. A three dimensional approach in the treatment plan including the role of practitioner, the patient and community is explored. More specifically this paper will deal with a Jewish view toward man faced with illness and societal obligations which enhance recovery. The unique role of the helping person in relationship with patient reflecting hope and compassion is presented. This paper offers a point of view which hopefully can broaden and enrich the practitioner role, adding a new dimension to rehabilitation services as well as treatment programs. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.54 no.2, Winter 1977.
