Shabbat is a special time
In Jewish households, Friday evening when the week comes to a close, the sun goes down and a new day of rest and tranquility dawns. Peace and blessings are ushered in by lighting candles and saying special prayers. Kivel-Hospice of the Valley: Partnership in End of Life Care was created to put Jewish volunteers at the beside of Jewish patients who want to receive Shabbat blessings in Hospice of the Valley’s palliative care units. It’s our honor to help our Jewish patients and families experience comfort, joy and a sense of community.
