Betty Ann Greenbaum Miller Center for Jewish Healing

"It is not good for people to be alone." (Genesis 2:18)

Jewish Healing ConnectionsThe Betty Ann Greenbaum Miller Center for Jewish Healing helps people feel a sense of connection when facing the challenges of illness, loss, or isolation by offering spiritual and communal supports to foster hope, comfort, and wholeness guided by Jewish tradition.

Serving people facing illness, loss, or isolation

  • The Friendly Visitor Program matches trained volunteers with isolated or vulnerable elders to provide companionship, promote aging with dignity, and offer a treasured connection to the Jewish community. With the help of volunteers, the program also provides holiday gatherings for vulnerable elders receiving services from JF&CS. At this time, the Friendly Visitor Program is only seeking volunteers who speak Russian.
  • The award-winning Nursing Home/Assisted Living Shabbat and Holiday Program provides regular Shabbat and holiday gatherings for Jewish residents living in nonsectarian assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

Serving the community through training and education

  • The Caring Communities Resource Network (CCRN) supports synagogue efforts to create and sustain caring communities through synagogue and community-wide trainings, consultations, and conferences. 
  • The Spirited Aging Program supports people of all ages in their search to find meaning, joy, and spirituality in their lives as they grow older.
  • The Healing Circle is an innovative model of self-care for human service professionals, designed to be replicated in a variety of workplace environments.
  • Information and referral

Thanks to a very generous gift from Daniel Miller in loving memory of his wife Betty Ann, z"l*, Jewish Healing Connections has been renamed the Betty Ann Greenbaum Miller Center for Jewish Healing.
