' “The World's Finest”
the doctor and not the medicine
CURES THE PATIENT
BY DAVID SCHWARTZ
(Copyright, 1947, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
Rabbi Joshua Liebman of Boston, author of the best seller,
•Trace of Mind,” in a recent address in New York urged that rabbis
study psychoanalysis.
You can’t become a psychoanalyst “on one leg.” It requires many
years of preparation. Before a physician may practice psychoanaly
sis, he must first take the regular medical course and then supple
ment it with training in the Freudian lore.
The general idea, however, that
rabJjis should be physicians is not
altogether new. At any rate,
many famous rabbis were. The
great Maimonides was a physic
ian, as were Rashi and Yehuda
Ha-Levy.
In broad sense, religion has al
ways had its medical implications.
There is a good Jewish story
which reminds me of this.
The wife of a certain Gentile
physician living in one of the
small towns of Russia, became
ill. Everything that medical
science could do was done, but
still the wife’s condition did not
improve. Then some Jewish
friends began saying Psalms for
the good woman and she recov
ered. The Gentile physician later
published a book on medicine and,

“SERVING THE BEACHES WITH FINER FOODS”
writing about the disease from
which his wife suffered, said: "it
all other things have been tried
and failed then the Psalms should
be recited in Hebrew.”
Chanting the Psalms when
someone is sick was an old Jew
ish custom, and I do not doubt it
has its healings to record as has
psychoanalysis. In saying this,
of course, I am by no means de
crying the Freudian doctrine.
The Hasidim have many stor
ies, as Dr. Louis I. Newman in his
"Anthology of Hasidic Tales” re
veals. One of the stories which
I like is about a fast called in a
certain town when a very good
Jew became ill. Many fasted and
prayed, to wit: "O Lord, heal
this good Jew, so I can get my
drink.”
After he had prayed, the good
Jew became well.
Another Hasidic story tells of
a young fellow suffering from a
nervous ailment who came to the
Hasidic rabbi. The "rebbe” told
him that he was sick because he
was melancholy. “Go out and
have a good time” was the moral.
The Hasidic “Zadik” was often
a physician to his Jewish parish
ioners. Many are the tales of
healing attributed to him. That
they were in the main, true, can
scarcely be doubted. Very often,
it is the doctor who cures, rath
er than the medicine he pre
scribes.
More and more science real
izes that what are often regard
ed as physical ailments are in
reality anxiety neuroses. Once
the treatments of ulcer was en
tirely physical. Today we know
that ulcer is chiefly mentally in
duced. Recently, the newspapers
quoted a famous doctor as say
ing that the pains of child-birth
are all mentally caused—induced
by fear. If there were no fears,
the woman might be delivered of
her child with almost no pains.
