Building a Caring Community: Healing for Self and Others
Led by Rabbi Chaya Gusfield
Sponsored by Or Shalom Chesed Circle

Healing is not only about cure and recovery.  We will learn what healing actually means. We will study prayers, Torah, stories, Talmud and find out how our traditions can guide our communities’ ways of caring for each other. Each class will offer lecture, discussion, and prayers of healing for those present and those on our hearts, experimenting with different forms of prayer.

Class #1: In the Torah and siddur: hidden healing gems

Class #2: The Mitzvot (sacred obligation) to visit the sick. What do we define as sick and what is a visit? You might be surprised by what the Talmud says.

Class # 3: Sweep the floor, give me your hands, stories from Talmud that will inspire you.

Class #4: We will examine a variety of ways a caring community can support others. When have you needed help? When have you offered accompaniment, rides, or food? The impact of receiving a card. Showing up for a shiva minyan. And more.
