The Jewish Chaplaincy, led by the Jewish Chaplain, works closely with Emory's Jewish Religious Life Affiliates, alumni, faculty, staff, and students to support the Jewish community at Emory through a progressive and pluralistic approach.

The Jewish Chaplain provides outreach and helps to organize the Jewish communities, develops leadership groups, and collaboratively plans, develops, and implements high-quality spiritual life programs including weekly gatherings, holiday observances, retreats, service and social justice projects, and fellowship events.

The Jewish Chaplain is also available for pastoral care and leadership in invocations, weddings, memorial services, vigils, and other rituals as needed. The Jewish Chaplaincy works closely with other OSRL chaplains, staff, and students on interfaith initiatives and connects the campus with local, regional, and national opportunities and resources.
