Para-chaplain Program

The JFS Para-chaplain Program reduces social isolation of Jewish residents of assisted living and nursing-care facilities through visitation and programs conducted by JFS para-chaplains and other volunteers. The program strengthens the connection between Jewish residents living in non-Jewish senior residential facilities and the Jewish community by arranging and leading religious services for Shabbat, High Holy Days, Hanukkah, and Passover. In addition, para-chaplains work with the staff at these facilities to sensitize them about the values, traditions, and holidays of Jewish residents.
