Healing Services

Contemporary Jewish healing services began in the 1980s. For many people struggling with illness, these rituals provide community, inspiration, and a place where the focus is on healing the spirit rather than curing the body. Services vary widely, but standard elements often include meditation, chanting, music, prayer, guided visualization and teaching from traditional and contemporary Jewish texts.
