    About the Book Praise [This] book chronologically traces the most significant points of encounter between the history of the Jewish people and the history of medicine. It includes 11 essays on such topics as ‘Healing in Jewish Lore and Law,’ ‘Jewish Folk Medicine’ and ‘Jewish Women in Medicine.’. Medicine and the Hebrew Bible By Marian Broida During the period when the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) was being written, there was no organized medical system in the lands of Israel and Judah. Most illnesses were probably treated at home, as several Bible stories illustrate, such as Elisha’s healing of a child in 2 Kings

    Starting with early modern times and the Enlightenment, through the 19th century, up until the horrors of medicine in the ghettos and concentration camps, the book collects a variety of perspectives on the question of how Judaism and Jewish culture were dynamically related to medicine and healthcare. For this reason, the revered Jewish scholar Maimonides listed health care first on his list of the 10 most important communal services that a city must offer its residents (Mishneh Torah, Hilchot De'ot IV: 23). Almost all self-governing Jewish communities throughout history set up systems to ensure that all their citizens had access to health care.
