Some Observations on Insanity in Jews

  • Harvey Baird (a1)

The great majority of the insane Jews chargeable to the various London unions are cared for in this asylum. Special arrangements are made in order that they may observe the customs and rites which their religion demands of them. A Jewish Rabbi visits them and holds religious services. A Jewish interpretress is on duty daily. There is a Jewish kitchen, where the food is prepared in the manner they are accustomed to. At certain periods of the year they fast as they would do in their own homes.
