Overview

This innovative, practical resource integrates the classic foundations of pastoral care with uniquely Jewish traditions and wisdom for people of all faiths, all backgrounds.

With a "who's who" list of contributors representing all movements within Judaism, this one-of-a-kind sourcebook draws upon the healing resources inherent in Judaism, and presents Jewish tradition's guidance for responding to people in a variety of situations.

Jewish pastoral care-an essential activity of rabbis, cantors, and many lay professionals-is spiritual accompaniment for people in need, in pain, or in transition. Creative and comprehensive, this handbook gives today's pastoral caregivers specialized conceptual and practical guidance, based on the Jewish tradition.
