AsMenachem Mendel said, "There is nothing so whole as a broken heart." When we say broken heart, we are not just talking about love because hearts can break for so many reasons. Judaism teaches us that being whole means allowing ourselves to be broken. Illness, pain and heartbreak are part of life, but Judaism can help us get through it.
Moses wandered for 40 years and never got to Israel. That's heartbreak.
The first healing prayer ever, as far as we know, can be found in the. It is Moses’ prayer for healing for his sister, Miriam, who had become ill with leprosy. (Spoiler alert – the prayer works and Miriam is healed.) This prayer is commonly chanted everywhere from synagogues to Jewish meditation classes. It’s quite beautiful. And short.

Seriously? You're asking if Jews know heartbreak?
The Jewish calendar dedicates one whole month to healing! It’s called. Iyar is the second month of the Jewish calendar, which comes during April/May on the secular calendar. It’s known as the month of natural healing because the name, Iyar, is an acronym for “I am God your healer.” But the important part as far as JewBelong is concerned is that Judaism recognizes the need for healing so deeply that we’re given a lot of time for it.
A famous rabbi said: There is nothing as whole as a broken heart. Of course, the rabbi had a date to his sister's wedding.
