The Jewish Chaplaincy Program, founded in 1966 is committed to gemilut chasadim, acts of love and kindness. For more than 40 years, the Chaplaincy Department at Greater Miami Jewish Federation has been dedicated to bringing spiritual comfort to the Miami Jewish community in various institutions through visitation, religious services, pastoral counseling and referrals. Our services are offered in hospitals, nursing homes, mental institutions, homes for the emotionally and physically challenged, and hospice. A prayer brochure called "Jewish Prayers for Healing" is available through the Community Chaplaincy Department to provide comfort and support through crisis. A Jewish spirutal companion book prepared by the department in partnership with local rabbis is in preparation. The Jewish Chaplaincy Program coordinates the Indigent Burial Program and is involved in on going initiatives focused on bringing assistance to the greater Miami Jewish community. Some of these initiatives include: Annual seminars along with Miami Jewish Health Systems and Mount Sinai Hospital benefit community caregivers; Bikur Cholim project provides volunteers with the opportunity to reach out and offer support by visiting the sick and elderly. Community involvement is encouraged and volunteers are trained to give excellent comfort and care to those in need.
