Mental Health is a Jewish Value

Jewish values, middot, help build the foundation on which the Jewish community stands. Our tradition emphasizes mutual support and respect.

Jewish literature and discussion have focused on healing, wellness, and community for years, yet we often shroud mental health in a sukkah of silence.

Mental health is a middot, emphasized from midrash to Maimonides to the modern era.


The 24-Hour Crisis Line provides immediate help to individuals, families, and friends of people in emotional crisis. They can help you determine if you or your loved one needs professional consultation and can link you to the appropriate services.
