Among the ultra-orthodox, crises and depression are perceived as spiritual challenges, the domain of rabbis and zaddikim. This chapter examines how the community manages such problems. It presents the views of two ultra-orthodox rabbis, who were selected because they dealt with young men with psychiatric problems and have extensive contact with community mental health centers (CMHCs).

Keywords:   ultra-orthodox Jews, crises, depression, spiritual challenges, community mental health, rabbis, zaddikim
