Join Dr. Frank Weitzman and Rabbi Birnholz on Zoom as they discuss “Ancient Jewish Cures, Medicines, and Potions: Would They Work Today?”

A recent headline reads “1,000-year-old medieval remedy could be potential antibiotic, scientists say.” Though it refers to a mixture of onion, garlic, wine, and bile salts described in a secular text, the Bible, Talmud, and other Jewish sources offer their own remedies for an array of bodily ills. These therapies will make you laugh, cry, and make you go “hmm.” Don’t miss this unusual insight into Jewish thought.
