Chabad Chaplaincy Program

Visiting the Sick is an integral part of Chabad's community programs. We know that healing is facilitated through the visits of caring, sensitive men and women. Members of our Visitation Committee reach out to those at home and in hospitals and make follow-up phone calls.

Nursing Homes are visited by Rabbi Kaplan prior to holidays, by our T.A.G. teen volunteers and upon request. These visits are important to bring joy and love to the elderly.

Prison Chaplaincy is another vital part of Chabad's chaplaincy work; visiting and counseling detainees in prisons. At this vulnerable point in a prisoner's life, the hope and help offered by a spiritual mentor can make all the difference. The challenge does not end at the prisons, for many inmates need a helping hand to get back into society.
