Welcome to  Jewish  Healing and Spirituality

Welcome to Jewish
Healing and Spirituality
Jewish healing is built on the
foundation that healing and spirituality
are synonymous terms. Those who
pursue a spiritual connection will heal
more effectively. In this site you can
find helpful articles on Jewish
mysticism (Kabbalah), spirituality,
spiritual healing and Torah to assist
you in living a Jewish spiritual life. Just
click on the links to your left.

Originally, energy healing and
mysticism was the work of the
Temple priests. After the  destruction
of the Temple, Jews fought for
survival nearly 20 centuries  and put
healing  and spirituality on the back
burner.
This site is non-denominational.  We
have no specific connections to  
orthodox, conservative, reform, or
Reconstructionist Judaism. You
might say we're unorthodox.

Healing is our birthright. Every culture
that ever existed had a system of  
healing.  Judaism is no exception.
Jewish healing is inextricably bound to
Jewish spirituality, ourreligious/spiritual
tradition. Many Jews in search of
spirituality flocked to the Eastern  
religions because they couldn't find it
in Judaism.

September 2014
Rosh Hashanah 2014
begins on the evening of
Wednesday, September 24
Hashanah means, literally, "head of the year"
or "first of the year." Rosh Hashanah is
commonly known as the Jewish New Year.
This name is somewhat deceptive, because
there is little similarity between Rosh
Hashanah, one of the holiest days of the
year, and the American midnight drinking
bash and daytime football game.

There is, however, one important similarity
between the Jewish New Year and the
American one: Many Americans use the New
Year as a time to plan a better life, making
"resolutions." Likewise, the Jewish New Year
is a time to begin introspection, looking back
at the mistakes of the past year and planning
the changes to make in the new year. More
on this concept at Days of Awe.

The name "Rosh Hashanah" is not used in
the Bible to discuss this holiday. The Bible
refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the
day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day
of the sounding of the shofar). The holiday is
instituted in Leviticus 23:24-25.
