Sukkat Shalom, Samaritan Healthcare’s Jewish Hospice program in South NJ provides a very special kind of care and support for all Jewish people living with serious illness when a cure is not possible.
Our mission is to bring a Sukkat Shalom – a Shelter of Peace – to our patients and their families by providing comfort, dignity and quality of life in the spirit of Chesed Shel Emet, eternal loving and compassionate kindness.
Samaritan’s Jewish Hospice Care program was created more than 18 years ago in coordination with the Samost Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Southern New Jersey to ensure that no Jewish person is ever alone when facing serious illness. Samaritan of South New Jersey offers a team approach to end-of-life care with an emphasis on reverence for the sacredness of life with sensitivity for Jewish traditions, rituals, and customs.
