  1. Alternative Medicine in Halachah

    Alternative Medicine in Halachah

    $26.75

    Until now, a great deal of confusion has prevailed regarding the halachic status of energy medicine.

    Is hands-on healing a form of avodah zarah? May one consult a kinesiologist? Is homeopathy permitted? Many rabbanim and poskimare not necessarily familiar with these modalities, and thus far there was no authoritativesefer dedicated to these issues, making it often very difficult to receive a halachic psak for such questions.

    In this long-awaited sefer, Rabbi Rephoel Szmerla clarifies for us the halachah regarding various alternative therapies, by presenting what each therapy is, explaining how it works, and discussing its halachic permissibility. In the process, he sheds light on many prohibitions, such as kishuf,nichush, kesimah, darchei ha'Emori, and more.

    This comprehensive work is grounded in a thorough understanding of alternative medicine and an in-depth knowledge of halachah. It is full of eye-opening concepts contained in Talmudic writings, guaranteeing a fascinating reading experience for both the scholar and layman. Learn More

  2. Health Guide for Frum Families

    Health Guide for Frum Families

    $9.50

    There are thousands of health and diet books in print, alongside many newspaper and magazine articles on the subject. So why another one?

    Sometimes, the question is the answer. There is so much health information out there that it is overwhelming. Orthodox Jews are busy people B"H. We want to be healthy but don't have much time. We want simple, clear information. What are the main things that we need to know?

    Also, many contemporary health books contradict each other. Eggs are good. No, they're bad. Carbs are bad. No, they're good. Dieting is bad, except for every diet created by a respected doctor. What is the "best advice" available, right now?

    Finally, what about us? How does general health advice relate to the uniqueness of Orthodox Jewish life?

    Ask yourself: Are you healthy? Do you have energy throughout the day? Does your body work as it should? If you - or those you care about - could be a little healthier and you want clear, up-to-date, Kosher, Doctor-approved advice, this slim but powerful volume could add health, happiness - and many years - to your life.

  3. Healing in Halachah

    Healing in Halachah

    $21.00

    The questions start with 'What is permissible or not on Shabbos' but don't end there. This incredible work - the fruit of years of specialization in the area by Rabbi Micah Cohn - cover areas such as Shabbos, Yom Tov, endangering oneself to help others, shidduchim, pregnancy and birth, end of life issues, and the under-explored but fascinating and crucial subject of mental health.

    In his encyclopedic and engaging style, Rabbi Cohn finds sources, parallels and examples from the length and breadth of Jewish life and scholarship to illustrate contemporary questions and issues. Though extremely practical, it is not a practical guide to medical halachah. It is a unique, thought provoking overview and appreciation of these complex issues. Of great interest to patients, caregivers, and medical professionals, this valuable work will be an indispensable resource to all fascinated about Torah guidance in the realms of medicine and mental health.

    Approbations:

    "This work is written with brilliance and clarity and will be a great asset to clarify serious issues in the field of medicine which today there is a great need for."

    Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky, Rosh Yeshiva, Talmudic Academy of Philadelphia

    "The author did a great thing by giving direction in these serious areas so they shouldn't be left to each individual to decide on their own. It is also a great asset to Torah scholars in understanding the intricacies of these questions and relevant halachic sources to properly render halachic decisions on these matters."

    Rabbi Yaakov Efrayim Forcheimer, Senior Poseik, Beth Medrash Govoha Learn More
