A source of solace and a healing resource for those who are
facing illness, as well as those who care for them.
For centuries, people have turned to the Book of Psalms for solace, comfort, and catharsis, seeking guidance, meaning, hope, and reassurance—in short, spiritual healing.
This book is intended to help you—struggling with illness or helping someone who is—derive spiritual healing from Psalms. In the late 18th century, Rabbi Nachman of Breslov designated ten of the 150 entries in the Book of Psalms as “healing psalms,” and we present these ten to you, newly translated, for your personal exploration and expression.
"Acknowledging that the Biblical Psalms can be somewhat alien to many people, we asked ten spiritual leaders to provide a bridge, a form of access, to these ancient poems of pain and praise, of humility and hope."  
—from the Introduction
“The Jewish Healing Center and Jewish Lights have provided ten valuable entry-points into the spiritual healing of the Book of Psalms.”
Rabbi Alan Silverstein, President, Rabbinical Assembly
“Opens us anew to the ancient wisdom and comfort of the psalms.”
Joan Borysenko, PhD, author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind
“[A] book one reads and rereads many, many times, that one strives to absorb and to be absorbed by, and that one keeps close at hand, so that one can be nourished by it in times of fear and stress and loneliness.”
Rabbi Jack Riemer, editor of So That Your Values Live On—Ethical Wills and How to Prepare Them and founder of the National Rabbinic Network
“Will bring comfort to anyone fortunate enough to read it. This gentle book is a luminous gem of wisdom.”
Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words:
The Power of Prayer & the Practice of Medicine
 “An inspiration and guide to those who want to rejoice in their affliction, and bring healing and salvation to themselves and those around them.”
Dr. Bernie Siegel, author of Love, Medicine and Miracles
 “As valuable a guide to the psalms as it is a guide through our times of trouble.”
Sherwin Nuland, M.D., F.A.C.S., Clinical Professor of Surgery at
Yale School of Medicine, author of
How We Die
