Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health
In the connections between Judaism and health, the Kalsman Institute of HUC-JIR is a catalyst for interaction, discussions and partnerships among spiritual leaders, healthcare providers, and Jewish community professionals and members. The Kalsman Institute provides pastoral education to future Reform leaders. Conferences and workshops convened and co-sponsored by Kalsman generate ideas and projects on Jewish spirituality and healing, bioethics, illness and wellness, and the health of the healthcare system. Through an international network of nearly 2,000 Kalsman Partners, the institute makes positive contributions to Jewish thought and practice through training, collaboration and dialogue.
Marshall S. Zolla serves as a member of the Kalsman Steering Committee and has participated in and spoken at Kalsman-sponsored conferences.
