Dear Rabbi Dan,

What is the Jewish view on taking care of one's health?



Dear HL,

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.
