Tikvah: Jewish Chaplaincy Community Initiative

Welcoming, accessible spiritual support for individuals and families.

We know that a compassionate, caring and connecting presence can help provide the resilience, courage and support needed to face life’s challenges. The professionally trained and certified Jewish chaplains at JCFS Chicago offer welcoming and easily accessible spiritual support for individuals and families. Whether you or a loved one is homebound or in a hospital, hospice, treatment center or other facility, if you are impacted by illness, addiction, end-of-life, loss, loneliness, or other life challenges, we are here for you.

TIKVAH also provides support to professionals in hospitals, hospices, senior facilities, treatment centers and congregations by offering learning opportunities, Jewish Shabbat and holiday programming, and spiritual resources.
