"Why me?" Why do we suffer? How
can we heal?
"Spiritual suffering must be
differentiated from physical pain, although the two are
intertwined in such a way that it is nearly impossible to
distinguish one from the other. We suffer spiritually when we
do not grow from our illness, when we do not learn from the
experience of physical and emotional pain."
—from the Introduction
Too many of us faced with bodily illness,
whether our own or that of a loved one, feel lost as to what to
do or how to handle it.
Grounded in the spiritual traditions of
Judaism, this book provides healing rituals, psalms and prayers
that help us initiate a dialogue with God, to guide us through
the complicated path of healing and wholeness. Olitzky explores:
What Judaism teaches us about
Finding the meaning of illness in
How to draw on prayers, services,
psalms, and other spiritual
resources for healing
How to grow by fully embracing the
process of recovery
Olitzky brings together his inspiring
guidance in using Jewish texts with his own experience dealing
with illness in others—including those he loves—to
demonstrate how the healing of the soul is an indispensable
counterpart to curing the body.
