Jewish Science and Health: Textbook of Jewish Science (1925) presents the philosophy and practice of Rabbi Morris Lichtenstein’s “Jewish Science movement” (an uncoordinated response to the then popular Christian Science movement), which he also referred to as “Applied Judaism.” Rabbi Lichtenstein emphasized the efficacy of visualization in the practice of prayer, and lacking that, the use of affirmations.

The innovation of this work is that, as an instructional manual, it is oriented to a personal practice rather than communal or ceremonial use. While scriptural verses and affirmation formulas are provided for practice, the work provides a theoretical basis for the efficacy of prayer as a personal activity engaged in private. Although the work lacks any annotation or any citation references, it pioneered a non-denominational and individually-oriented approach that later teachers, such as Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, developed later on in presenting the meditative and prayer practices of earlier ḳabbalists and ḥasidic teachers.
