Most of our work happens quietly—in hospital beds, community rooms, or at a bedside. The Healing Center rabbis are witness to the power of connection through story. With love and respect, we share these stories so that they can live on beyond the moment, helping to fight isolation and inspire deeper reflection and connection in the wider community.
