The obesity epidemic and the climbing diabetes statistics amount to a nationwide public health emergency. Yet, thanks to modern medical science, we have a much better understanding of this silent killer. Jews with diabetes, in particular, are no longer faced with the dilemma of being forced to choose between following our traditions and beliefs or protecting our health.

Resources: 1. Friends With Diabetes (www.friendswithdiabetes.org) A Rockland County-based support group for religious Jews with diabetes. Distributes diabetes-safe recipes, sponsors meetings (separated by gender and age), and presentations by renowned rabbonim. Publications, edited by Rabbi Hirsch Meisels, in English, Hebrew and Yiddish, address halachic, social and health challenges facing frum Jews living with diabetes.

2. Jewish Diabetes Association (http://jewishdiabetes.com) An organization devoted to diabetes education and advocacy offering its website, magazine and contact persons in both Hebrew and English.

3. Living With Diabetes (www.mendosa.com) Informational website

4. American Diabetes Organization (http://www.diabetes.org)
An organization dedicated to preventing and curing diabetes and improving the lives of all people affected by the disease.
