There was a lot more to health practices in Jewish communities in Eastern Europe than chicken soup. (Not to discount that a good bone broth is excellent for health. Looks like those women were onto something.)
Who were the healers in the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe? What were some of the attitudes, beliefs, practices and remedies prevalent in the Ashkenazi Jewish communities?
After taking a quick journey through 4000 years of Jewish healing in the many countries Jews lived, we’ll take a deeper look into the health practices of the last 400 years in Eastern Europe. I’ll also present some ideas and recipes to bring this into modern herbal practice along with western, and other herbal practices.
