Saturday, October 08, 2005 I was asked the following question:
Dear Rabbi Dan,
What is the Jewish view on taking care of one's health?
was my response:
The morning prayer service, begins with a series of acknowledgments of what G-D
provides for us...These are called the Brachot and, obviously, are intended to
give us a manual for self preservation. Since Hashem has provided us with the
gifts that make our journey in this world possible and even pleasurable, it
becomes incumbent upon us to do whatever we can to allow for those blessings to
be brought to fruition.
you have questions about a personal matter, or jewish practices
and customs, you can submit them to me by e-mail.
I answer all queries directly, or through this column, when the
question is informative to our community.
you for your kind attention and this opportunity to share with you,
Rabbi Dan S. Wiko
