INTERFACE OF SPIRITUALITY/ RELIGION & MENTAL HEALTH
Last, but not least, one of the founders of modern psychiatry is of Sigmund Freud who served on the Board of Trustees of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem from its founding in 1920. He wrote avidly about Judaism especially in his book “Moses and Monotheism”. To my knowledge the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is the only university in the world that has an endowed Sigmund Freud chair of psychoanalysis, which was endowed by donations raised by the World Psychoanalytic Association.
