Halachah & Psychology: The Rabbi as a Caregiver

Refael "Rafi" Feuerstein

Social Justice, Text & Thought

Twenty-five year old single Rachel lives at home with her parents and family. Cramped living conditions and her personal and professional state cause much friction. At times she has fits of anger that disrupt the home. She investigated the halakhah (Jewish law) - Before the blind do not put a stumbling-block. We will attempt to understand who are the blind and the stumbling-block and who is responsible. Mainly we will study how halakah functions in psychology no less than in the spiritual area.
