This article examines one aspect of the research and recommendations of the Jewish Home and Hospital's (JHH) Long-Range Planning Committee. Strategically focused to increase the Jewish presence at JHH, the committee explored the history and guiding Jewish values of the organization. Based on in-depth research, including interviews, site visits, and demographic studies, it recommended four initiatives: increasing Jewish ambiance, enhancing spiritual practice and access to religious observance, developing staff education and learning opportunities and fostering greater community partnerships.
