As with all of the Judeo-Christian faiths, being Jewish requires an active commitment to living faithfully and that means, a commitment that goes much further that just attending a weekly service and observing an important religious holiday.

The first thing a Jewish assisted living facility will offer is a Rabbi, either on staff and brought in from the local Jewish community, that will help seniors in prayer, will offer spiritual guidance, and will help educate their community so each member can find deeper understanding of their faith. In many cases, these Rabbis will also be qualified and happy to works with those of others faiths, but as Rabbis, they are especially important to Jews.

Part of what a Rabbi will do is to help seniors understand their own weaknesses so they can work to strengthen them and so they can atone for their faults. This is their path to redemption, in the eyes of God and their Rabbi is their guide along this path. Along this path are opportunities to do good works for the benefit of others and a Jewish assisted living facility will certainly need to play an active role in helping seniors reach out and find opportunities to do these good deeds.

Caregivers that share the Jewish faith will being these qualities to their work naturally and that is why a Jewish assisted living facility can be so much more comforting for Jewish seniors.
