About this title

Synopsis:

Jews and Medicine examines the special relationship between Jews and medicine both intrinsically, from within, and historically, from without. Two questions were posed: first, does Judaism in itself foster a special attitude toward medicine, and secondly, to what extent did life in the Diaspora influence the Jewish contribution to medicine? The book chronologically traces the most significant points of encounter between the history of the Jewish people and the history of medicine, beginning with the Bible and ending with the modern world and the State of Israel. This beautiful book is a unique combination of information and artifact, history and philosophy, and is a perfect gift for any doctor, rabbi, or anyone else interested in the long and noble relationship between Jews and medicine.

Review:

"[This] book chronologically traces the most significant points of encounter between the history of the Jewish people and the history of medicine. It includes 11 essays on such topics as 'Healing in Jewish Lore and Law,' 'Jewish Folk Medicine' and 'Jewish Women in Medicine.' Sprinkled with full-color pictures of manuscripts, posters, postcards, photographs, and sketches taken from Beth Hatefutsoth, the Nahum Goldman Museum of the Jewish Diaspora in Israel, this work examines two questions: Does Judaism in itself foster a special attitude toward medicine? To what extent did life in the Diaspora influence the Jewish contribution to medicine?"—Detroit Jewish News (Detroit Jewish News)
