Chaplaincy Support

The JFS Chaplaincy Program provides spiritual connection and support for Jewish residents in Capital Region long-term and elder care facilities. The breadth of services includes:

  • Providing pastoral care and counseling for residents.
  • Visits with individuals who are otherwise unaffiliated, isolated and disconnected from Jewish life.
  • Providing programming on Jewish topics for residents.
  • Consultation/education with facility staff on Jewish traditions, holiday preparations and food guidelines/restrictions to help them become more culturally sensitive to Jewish residents and their needs.
  • Collaboration with Jewish and non-Jewish professionals in the community.

If you know someone in need of spiritual care, please contact our Jewish Community Chaplain,
Rabbi Ami Monson at amonson@jfsneny.org.

This program is provided in partnership with:
  • Daughters of Sarah Community for Seniors
  • Temple Israel
  • Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York
  • B’nai B’rith Gideon Foundation
  • Theodore Strauss Fund
    • A restricted fund of the Jewish Community Endowment Fund of the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York
