Spiritual care volunteers are individuals who are drawn to provide
comfort, are good listeners, and are able to meet and connect with
people of all ages from a wide range of different
backgrounds—religious and non-religious, American born and émigrés.
Knowledge about Judaism or involvement in the Jewish community is
helpful but not required. However, openness to learning and an
interest in and acceptance of people of widely different backgrounds
and religious orientations is essential. Proficiency in Hebrew,
Spanish, French, Farsi or Arabic is a plus.
