Overview

by Robin E. Berman, M.D., Arthur Kurzweil, Dale L. Mintz, MPA, CHES
 
The Jewish people have special concerns, approaches and attitudes about health and wellness, due in part to certain illnesses known as “Jewish genetic diseases,” such as Tay-Sachs, Niemann-Pick, Gaucher and others. Beyond these genetic diseases, however, the entire range of topics and issues related to health and wellness has long been of great interest to the religious and secular Jewish community. Jewish tradition has developed many special approaches to health and health-related issues, based on the hallowed traditions and precepts found in the Torah, its commentaries and the vast literature written by rabbinic authorities throughout the centuries.
 
Similarly, Jewish secular culture has developed special attitudes and approaches to the issues presented in this book regarding women’s health, nutrition, raising children, caregiving and other special issues. The Hadassah Jewish Family Book of Health and Wellness, written in collaboration with Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, known throughout the world for its leadership as a major force in health research and education, provides a much-needed resource and guide to physical health and spiritual issues of concern to Jewish families.
