CEDARS-SINAI ALERT COVID-19 (coronavirus)

INFORMATION AND UPDATES FOR PATIENTS AND VISITORS

For more than 100 years, Cedars-Sinai’s role as a Jewish hospital has been to provide compassionate care to people of all faiths and backgrounds.  Our values motivate us to offer chaplains of various traditions and celebrations of many major holidays for our diverse community of patients, their loved ones, and our caregivers.


Weekly Services

The Cedars-Sinai chapel, which is located on the Plaza Level, between the North and South towers, is open to everyone 24 hours a day. Some religious programs may also be viewed on Cedars-Sinai TV, Channel 50, including Jumu'ah (Friday afternoon weekly Islamic congregational service). 

There are Muslim prayer rugs, and scarves, as well as Islamic literature (including copies of the Qur'an) available in the chapel. The Qibla (orientation towards Mecca) is marked by a picture. If a patient needs additional resources, like prayer beads or Tayammum (dry ablution) kit, or determining the Qibla in a patient room, please request a chaplain.

Friday, 1:15-1:45 p.m – Jumu'ah or Islamic Prayer Service

Advance Healthcare Directives

By completing an advance healthcare directive, you can clearly state your healthcare goals, values and preferences. An advance healthcare directive allows you to share with your care team and loved ones what is most important to you when thinking about your health—and gives you greater peace of mind.

Review these forms and resources. Talk with your doctor, your family and your rabbi or spiritual adviser, and work with them to complete your advance healthcare directive. That way, your care team and those most dear to you can honor your healthcare decisions.

Meet Our Team

Our dedicated chaplains are available to comfort you and can assist with your spiritual or religious needs.
