The Limits of Healing: Exploring Boundaries to Healing and Care
Wednesday, April 25 | 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Our tradition describes the tension between the imperative to provide healing and care for another and the extent to which we must acknowledge the limitations upon that healing and care. How can we help heal when the other is hard to care for? Does it matter what the reason is? What are the limits to my capacity or ability to care and heal? How can I balance the creation of healthy personal boundaries with the communal obligation I hold to provide care for those in need?
This workshop will explore these questions and some perspectives from the Jewish tradition to these enduring dilemmas.
We will also describe ChaiVillageLA, a unique caring community collaboration between Temple Isaiah and Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills.
This session is designed for caregivers, individuals who serve as part of caring committees and clergy involved with caring committees.
