10 Great Texts - The Series

10 great HUC-JIR scholars presenting texts from our classic and contemporary sources. Each text is chosen by our exceptional faculty for its remarkable content and because of the way in which it represents the thinking and paradigms of its genre. Learn about each of our teachers and their topics through our unique sampling guide that will give you a birds-eye view of this incredible series.

Health and Healing: Ancient and Modern Perspectives

Issues and struggles with health and healing are central to the pastoral roles that Jewish professionals play in sustaining communities, individuals and themselves. This course package addresses wellbeing from many perspectives – from the medical to the spiritual, from the musical to the textual. Studied together they will deepen and strengthen the skills and insights of all K’lai Kodesh working in any aspects of modern Jewish life.

Learn more about the courses in this package, many of which were co-sponsored by the HUC-JIR Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health, and about the special introduction and study guides from Rabbi Julie Pelc, former Assistant Director of the Kalsman Institute.
