Throughout Jewish history, every community had a rabbi who brought about cures and healing. These baalei shem - so called bacause their techniques often involved using Divine Names in amulets - possessed extensive knowledge about medicinal herbs and other healing methods. Ancient Jewish Medicine, by Rabbi Chaim Fuchs, includes a comprehensive survey of sources in the Torah, Mishnah, Talmud and Midrash, as well as medieval and modern commentaries that discuss medicinal plants, flowers, animal products, and metals. Readers will enjoy learning about Jewish medicinal practices throughout history and how they relate to Jewish law, as well as medical ethics and disease prevention.

This book is the product of the combined efforts and aspirations of Rabbi Fuchs and Dr. Isaac Madeb. Dr. Madeb took an interest in Rabbi Fuchs's work, especially in the field of urology, Dr, Madeb's area of expertise, and encouraged the research and production of this book.
