Exploring the "J" in JSSA is an ongoing series of writings by Rabbi James Kahn, the Jewish Social Service Agency (JSSA) Director of Jewish Engagement and Chaplaincy. Here, Rabbi Kahn reflects on JSSA's inspirational work through the lens of Jewish wisdom. His writings are grounded in Jewish tradition, but speak to universal issues of meaning and value. They provide a rich context for the vital services that JSSA offers and serve to nourish both the people that bring JSSA's mission to life every day as well as their clients and the community at large.
We invite you to read and share Rabbi Kahn's Thanksgiving message.

Reaching out to local communities is a daily activity at the more than 5,000 hospice organizations across the country. Every November, this activity is amplified as the nation's hospice and palliative care community observes National Hospice Palliative Care Month and raises awareness about end of life care and how palliative care empowers people to live as fully as possible, surrounded and supported by family and loved ones. This special month also allows the Jewish Social Service Agency the opportunity to salute the wonderful and important work of JSSA's Hospice program.
JSSA Hospice was founded almost 30 years ago (and in fact 2014 will mark JSSA Hospice's 30th birthday!) and its mission remains unchanged today. We invite you to learn more.
