Join The Jewish Center for a special presentation and discussion by Rabbi Vanessa Ochs, PhD on the topic of Jews, Health and Healing.

SECTION ONE: April 11, 2019 at 7:30 pm
For everyone:
What Jewish Sensibilities do we bring to the table when we reflect on our healthcare decisions for ourselves and loved ones?

SECTION TWO: May 2, 2019 at 7:30 pm
For people who are or have been in healthcare professions:
What are the Jewish Sensibilities that are especially relevant in healthcare? How can an awareness of these Sensibilities increase the understanding we bring to caring for Jewish patients and families?

Rabbi Vanessa Ochs, PhD, is Professor of Religious Studies and member of the Jewish Studies Program at the University of Virginia. Author of “Inventing Jewish Ritual,” (winner of a Jewish Book Award) “Sarah Laughed” and “Words on Fire”, she originated the concept of Jewish Sensibilities in 2003.
