Founding, Advisory Board, and Funding
Jewish Chaplaincy Services was originally founded in 2000 as The Jewish Chaplaincy at Stanford University Medical Center (later known as The Jewish Chaplaincy at Stanford Medicine). It was founded by Chaplain Bruce Feldstein MD and leaders from the Jewish, medical and university communities who understood the importance of providing spiritual care to individuals and families during medical crises, and supporting the staff who care for them.
Now, as part of Jewish Family and Children’s Services, this robust program continues to serve Stanford Health Care, Stanford Children’s Health and Stanford University School of Medicine, enhanced by JFCS’ wealth of experience, resources and continuum of care.
