Maps and Meaning: Levitical Models for Contemporary Care

כריכה קדמית
Augsburg Fortress Publishers, 2014 - 265 עמודים

Maps and Meaning is rooted in the authors experience as clergy and chaplains and is relevant to those looking for a fresh perspective on biblical narratives related to the role of the priest, patients, soldiers, and others who spend time outside the camp. Drawing on diverse fields, from neuroscience to anthropology, the authors consider the geographical, interpersonal, temporal, and spiritual transitions individuals experience when they move in and out of the camp and the impact their time outside the camp has on family and community. They offer a unique perspective on self-care for caregivers of different disciplines who negotiate these transitions in their work.And they explore the lives and transitions of patients and returning veterans.

Drawing on contemporary explorations of stigma, the authors raise communal questions related to healthcare, returning veterans, and incarcerated people.They propose a societal approach that embraces the inevitability of lifes ebbs and flow and that draws maps to facilitate these journeys.

This book is a finalist in two categories for the 2014 National Jewish Book Award, 'Contemporary Jewish Life and Practice' and 'Modern Jewish Thought and Experience'!
