Exploring Judaism’s Healing Potential

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/exploring_judaisms_healing_potential_20050121

Rabbi Donald Goor, senior rabbi of Temple Judea in the West Valley, has identified a deficiency within the Jewish community: There's not enough emphasis on care of the soul. "In my rabbinate, I see so many people who walk around wounded. They function very well in life, but they carry pain." This weekend, Goor and approximately 100 others will explore how Judaism can heal this pain when they meet at the third-annual Partner Gathering, convened by the Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health. For two days, leaders of the Jewish Healing movement from around the country will discuss how to help those facing illness, loss and other life challenges.
