Chag Pesach Sameach
The holiday of Passover is a family holiday celebrated at home among loved ones – family and friends. We want to personally wish you and your family a Happy Passover and we are truly thankful for your continued commitment to Calvary Hospital.
Thanks to your generous support we will continue Calvary’s more than a century of sensitivity to help our Jewish patients and families feel comfortable during their stay here. Calvary staff are knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of the Jewish community.
“Calvary has become my 2nd home. The Kosher Food pantry is truly wonderful and very comforting. A hot drink and a kosher snack to nosh on at 3 a.m. really means a lot to me and my family.”
Every year, Calvary cares for nearly 1,000 Jewish patients in our hospice/home care program, at our Bronx and Brooklyn campuses, at The Dawn Greene Hospice at Mary Manning Walsh Home in Manhattan, and at Ozanam Hall of Queens Nursing Home.
Our staff receives ongoing training in the traditions of the Jewish community. We respect the traditions of our Jewish patients and families, across the spectrum of religious and cultural beliefs.
Like all people in our care, Jewish families turn to Calvary because of our extraordinary care. Thanks to your generous support, we are able to care for Jewish patients and families, so that they can be comfortable, and so that we can meet all of their needs, including Kosher food, a dedicated kosher hospitality suite, and a Shabbat lounge where families can stay over a Shabbat or holiday.
The Jewish Family Services Fund (JFS) has been established to ensure Calvary Hospital is able to continue to provide industry-leading supportive care services for our Jewish patients and their loved ones during their time with us at Calvary Hospital.
We hope you will consider making a contribution to the JFS Fund and help Calvary educate other care providers, honor the traditions of the Jewish Community in our care and extend our reach so we may educate and care for more people in need.
