Stories from the Narrow Bridge: Meeting People in their Time of Need
Hosted By: Kolot Mayim Reform Temple
Sari Shernofsky is a trained multi-faith hospital chaplain and worked both in the hospitals and in hospice helping to meet the needs of those in crisis for 15 years. Sari also served as the Jewish community chaplain in Calgary where, in addition to visiting individuals, she helped set up support groups and various training workshops for synagogues that wanted to become involved in community care. For Sari, to care for others in time of need—whether it be illness, end of life care or simply to connect with those who are isolated or alone — is not a choice but an obligation she sees as a profound Jewish value. Sari, who now lives in Victoria BC, will talk about her journey to chaplaincy.
Sari will share stories about some of the patients she has travelled with. She will also consider issues of spirituality and aging, as well as her experience with MAID (medical assistance in dying). Sari’s talk will include a selection of music and poetry offerings.
