MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Klein Chaplaincy is to fulfill the commandment of Bikkur Cholim, visiting the sick. No member of the community should be lonely, isolated, forgotten or abandoned because of illness, infirmities or advanced in age.

Reaching out with open arms, a warm heart and an understanding spirit, we make a commitment to share their suffering. As we nourish their spirits, offer comfort, friendship and consolation, we bring shlemut, a sense of wholeness and connection to the Jewish community of the South Bay, and continue the work of Tikkun Olan, repairing and healing our world.
