While healing often seems out of reach and achieving wholeness seems impossible, our midrashic texts teach that hope is always there…. Biblical characters, especially as enhanced through midrashic interpretation, are like relatives and old friends…. We cannot escape seeing [them] as human beings standing at the crossroads of their lives in situations that are very much our own.
from Chapter 2

This groundbreaking volume examines the spiritual shortfalls of our current healing environment and explores how midrash can help you see beyond the physical aspects of healing to tune in to your spiritual source.

Pushing the boundaries of Jewish knowledge, physicians, rabbis, social workers, psychologists and philosophers investigate the role of midrashic thinking in addressing seemingly intractable social and personal issues. Topics discussed include:
How metaphors and parables can aid healing
How Jewish tradition can inform and enrich health, hospice and nursing-home care
New ways of reading Jewish texts in the discussion of medical ethics
The role of community in addressing aging, loss and suffering.
