Para-Chaplains and Jewish Elders

By Michele Wolgel Rose

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2006

The Jewish federation is a unique American invention, although it has deep roots in Jewish tradition. It has evolved from a structure devoted to meeting the social and health needs of American Jews and helping them assimilate into American society to one whose major goal is the strengthening of Jewish identity. In the process, the concept of a continental Jewish community has taken shape.This article explores the effects of connecting with the elderly through Jewish prayer and song, as well as advocacy.
