Abstract: The Verapo Yerape journal is an important contribution to the fascinating world of medicine and halakhah, which has been a burgeoning field of scholarship in recent years. We live in an age where scientific discoveries, new treatments and seemingly miraculous innovations appear almost daily. Baruch Hashem, Klal Yisrael has been given a Torah system to grapple with and clarify whatever new discoveries the world of science has to offer mankind. The name of this journal signifies its mission - V’rapo Yerape (Ex. 21:19). Chazal tell us (Bava Kama 85a) that this pasuk teaches us that we are permitted to heal others or hire doctors to heal on our behalf. Rabbi Menachem Nachum Twersky of Chernobyl (1730-1787 in Sefer Me’or Einayim) suggests that once the permission is given a certain wisdom - a special Torah wisdom to heal - naturally follows. Some of that wisdom is contained in the pages that follow. (From Preface by the Dean of RIETS, Rabbi Menachem Penner)
