Halakhot (Jewish Laws) of Mental Illness

Hosted By: Drisha

This series will consider how Halakhah (Jewish law) responds to mental illness, considering topics from their earliest sources to contemporary application. We will consider various scenarios (people who experience psychotic episodes, anorexia, and borderline personality disorder), examine the challenges that come with them, and the various solutions that might be offered to mitigate these challenges.

February 7: Is someone suffering from anorexia exempt from any obligation on their way to recovery?

February 14: Can we allow journaling on Shabbat for someone suffering from depression or Borderline Personality Disorder?
