Read about Wolper’s fascinating history
Wolper Jewish Hospital celebrated its 60th anniversary on 21 August 2021. In recognition of that milestone a history of Wolper entitled ‘The First 60 Years’ has been published outlining the Hospital’s evolution from 1961 to date.
The hospital first envisioned after World War II was the realisation of its founders’ vision of a Jewish hospital that cares for the wellbeing of all, irrespective of religion, race, background or beliefs. Commencing with the aspirations of its founders, ‘The First 60 Years’ brings to life the key events and personalities that contributed to Wolper becoming the well-recognised provider of the highest quality healthcare it is today.
For many people, their admission to Wolper Jewish Hospital is their first experience of spending time among people practising Judaism. As with many religions today, Judaism encompasses a range of beliefs, and varying degrees of adherence to observance, traditions and cultural practices. This booklet focuses on the core elements of Judaism as well as outlining the spectrum of Jewish belief and practice. It is not intended to be an exhaustive reference, but rather to provide an overview. If you want to explore further, the ‘Sources’ section is a good place to begin.
