Sha'arei Refuah: Gates of Jewish Healing is the first book if its kind to present the theory and practice of Jewish healing. As more and more professional health care workers are finding their way into Jewish healing, they recognize that the present standards are just not sufficient to enable true and lasting healing. Therapists of every kind believe that a more clinical approach is needed to deal with the everyday, chronic problems, in addition to the life threatening illnesses, from which many of us suffer. We need a health system that includes spirituality in which we can participate to bring wholeness into our lives. The purpose of this book is to provide readers with Jewish thoughts on healing together with practical tools to help overcome illness of every kind. Jewish healing is entering a new phase, which goes beyond the prevalent standard of bikkur cholim (visiting the sick), supporting families facing medical crises, and comforting mourners.
