The Jewish Hospice & Chaplaincy Network is the organized response of the Jewish community to provide care and support for all Jewish terminally ill and their families in Southeast Michigan. The network seeks to insure that “No Jew is Ever Alone” as they approach the end of their lives or they are participating in the end of life journey with someone they love.

The network partners with more than 15 hospices and health care systems to provide compassionate and loving clinical care. Hospice care focuses on providing patients with comfort care. Hospice emphasizes pain control, symptom management, and supportive care that enhances quality of life. In addition, the network provides spiritual care, guidance, volunteers and social work, for patient and family all in a Jewish context.

Through its Lifelinks program, Jewish Hospice & Chaplaincy Network helps access the myriad of services available to the family throughout the Jewish community.

Since its inception in 1999, the network has served thousands of Jewish families in the spirit of “Chesed Shel Emes”, eternal loving and compassionate kindness. The network was created by and works in collaboration with Jewish Family Service, Michigan Board of Rabbis, Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit and The Jewish Fund.
