Abstract

This article provides insight into Jewish law, ethics, and cultural practices regarding pain management, care of the dying Jewish patient, and Jewish rituals after death across the care continuum. Clinically and culturally appropriate care provision is important in the setting of a hospital, nursing home, and community dwelling because of deep religious belief and practices, as well as life experiences such as the Holocaust. The recognition of deep spiritual and cultural practices from the interdisciplinary or interprofessional team serves to fulfill a holistic approach to the overall care of the patient and family.
