For Jewish people who must go into hospital, please contact the Synagogue Office to arrange for hospital visitation, by clergy and/or by caring volunteers. Our office can arrange for special hospital visits during festivals (South Dublin only), so that patients can hear the shofar blown, wave a lulav or watch a menorah being kindled. The Synagogue Office also has hospital-friendly Sabbath lights, for women and girls who want to keep this special mitzvah.
For hospitals catering for observant patients, the Synagogue Office offers guides to kosher food service in hospitals, and we are always ready to advise on specific questions and implementation. Catering managers and nutritionists should contact the Office HERE
