Bridges to Wholeness: Jewish Family Services and Jewish Healing

By Tracey L. Kite, Susan Rosenthal

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2007

The authors discuss the ways in which the Jewish Family Service movement can work with the Jewish healing movement -- the use of Jewish tradition and community to achieve a sense of spiritual wholeness, comfort, or perspective in the face of illness, pain, or loss. They discuss resources that help and hinder the development of this movement, and the possible future of Jewish Healing Centers within the field of Jewish Family Services. The authors discuss, as examples, the Jewish Healing Network in Chicago and the National Center for Jewish Healing in New York.
