When a person becomes ill, reaches their last breath, or meets grief, the impact can be profound. In these challenging times, Jewish healing offers ancient tradition and modern tools for individuals and families as they struggle through life’s hardest moments. As the nation’s first Jewish healing center, we’ve been honored to provide spiritual care to many in our Bay Area community since 1991.

Disability Accessibility Information

We believe that no organization can call itself fully accessible, as access may mean different things to different people. However, we strive to say “yes” to welcoming and accommodating the broadest range of needs we possibly can.
