For Religious Leaders


בְּיָדוֹ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי בְּעֵת אִישָׁן וְאָעִירָה
וְעִם רוּחִי גְוִיָּתִי יְיָ לִי וְלֹא אִירָא

In Your hand I place my soul, when I sleep and when I wake up, for when Your spirit is with me, my God is with me and I will not fear. (from liturgy, Adon Olam)



Supporting your congregants as they consider end-of-life options can be difficult. You will likely be forced to confront your own values about quality and quantity of life. Working alongside the Jewish hospice or palliative care practitioner, the religious leader can help create an environment where open conversation is encouraged and supported.

We will continue to update the site with information and resources to enable having meaningful conversations with your community.

Send us your ideas for sermons and congregational programs.
