New Religious Accommodation at Holy Name Medical Center...a Sukkah!

Date: 9/28/2012

Jewish physicians, staff, patient family members and guests on the Holy Name campus during the upcoming Festival of Succoth will be able to take their meals in Holy Name's new Sukkah, thanks to the suggestion of longtime staff member Deb Ross, RN, MS, and the support of Holy Name President/CEO Michael Maron and Executive Vice President/ CMO Adam Jarrett, MD.

Noting the significant number of Jewish patients and family members the medical center serves as well the significant number of Jewish physicians on staff, Ross, an IT Clinical Specialist at Holy Name, approached Dr. Jarrett and Mr. Maron, who readily approved the purchase of a Sukkah to be erected in the ground floor patio area, near the medical center's clinic.

That Holy Name, a Catholic institution founded 88 years ago by the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Peace, would decide to install a Sukkah, should not be a surprise to anyone who has visited the medical center in the last decade. In addition to accommodating Jewish patients who stay overnight on the Sabbath and holidays in the Sabbath room, there's a Sabbath elevator, Sabbath lounge, kosher meals for patients and guests, mammograms on Sundays and hospice programs accredited by the National Institute for Jewish Hospice. Several local Bikur Cholim groups visit Jewish patients every Shabbat and keep the Shabbat refrigerator stocked. Deb Ross continues the legacy begun by her late mother of delivering apples and honey to patients before the start of Rosh Hashanah. Rabbi Shalom Fisch, son of the late Rabbi Stanley Fisch, Holy Name's first Jewish Chaplain and Molly Fisch, a former Holy Name pharmacist, blows Shofar for patients every Rosh Hashanah.

Dr. Jarrett enthusiastically supports the concept of a Sukkah for Holy Name. "It's another vehicle for being welcoming to our incredibly diverse community and another opportunity for us to learn about one another. We can't change the world, but we can ensure that in our little community, we respect one another."

Sister Breda Boyle, Director of Pastoral Care, explains that providing a Sukkah for our Jewish staff and patient family members is "very much in keeping with the Holy Name  tradition of caring that addresses the medical, cultural and spiritual needs of every patient and our Mission to serve every member of our community."

The Holy Name Sukkah was purchased from Sukkah Depot by arrangement with the Judaica House on Cedar Lane. Students from Maayanot Yeshiva High School for Girls made decorations which they will hang in the Sukkah, under the guidance of Mrs. Ivy Weiner, Maayanot's Community Service Coordinator.
