Sixteen Lights Capital Campaign
The Sixteen Lights Capital Campaign is dedicated to raising funds for our hospice residences. A residence provides Jewish hospice and palliative care services in a setting that provides expert medical care, pain management, emotional and spiritual support, even outside of the home. These unique facilities provide a spacious, private, home-like setting for families to be together, eat together and even spend the night with their loved ones during their final days.
