In the unfortunate event that a Jewish person is in hospital, the Jewish Hospital Visitation Service will arrange for someone from the Jewish community to pay them a visit.
On behalf of the Multi Faith Chaplaincy Committee run by the NHS, US Chesed co-ordinates Jewish Hospital Visitation and Jewish Hospital Chaplaincy for anyone Jewish in hospital. The government recognises that there are patients of different religions in hospital who wish to be visited by a member of their faith, such as a Rabbi. The United Synagogue is the overall synagogal organisation that administers these chaplains and visitors for the Jewish community in London and the Home Counties.
If you or anyone you know would like to volunteer to visit Jewish hospital patients please get in touch with us.
Senior Hospital Chaplain: Rabbi Zorach Meir Salasnik.
