Jeff Levin Lecture -“Judaism, Medicine, and Healing” @ Aging Center Conference Room, Duke South, Room 3512
Jul 25 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Summary: Dr. Levin surveys the new field of Judaism and health. He traces the history of discourse on health and healing within Judaism, from the Torah and rabbinic literature to contemporary research and writing on Jewish bioethics and medical halakhah, Jewish health policy advocacy, Jewish chaplaincy and pastoral care, and Jewish communal services, including congregational and community programming related to aging, hospice, health, and wellness. He also discusses the emergence of the Jewish healing movement, including the work of psychologists, healers, and students of kabbalah. Finally, he touches briefly on recent studies that point to an impact of Jewish religious observance on physical and mental health.
