The Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health, in partnership with Temple Chai in Phoenix, Arizona, is offering a program of Jewish study for Jewish physicians. The goal is to use Jewish study as a source of renewal - to help physicians integrate clinical and spiritual life. It is for physicians interested in exposure to Jewish learning related to Judaism and health.
Since we know how hard it is for healthcare professionals to get away from work and personal life to take classes, we are offering a distance education course for just an hour or two a week, using the internet and telephone. The course is bookended by a Shabbat retreat in Scottsdale, Arizona, Feb. 15-17, 2008, and a closing retreat for one day on May 4. Please go to www.kalsman.org and click on the palm tree on the right of the home page for the brochure, more information, and online registration. Registration is nearly full, so please contact us soon. A module will begin in September 2008 for other healthcare professionals, such as nurses, therapists, and other specialists. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
