 Welcome to Jewish Family Services

(see Quick Links below for Edmonton Healing Centre for Grief & Loss)

“We envision a world of economic and social justice; a world where individuals, families and communities care for and support themselves and one another. To this end, we provide strength and support to individuals and families in need, in a manner sensitive to Jewish values.”

What if I’m not Jewish?…

We are often asked if we provide services only to Jewish people. Sometimes people wonder if a religious component will be evident when they come for services. The answer to both of these is No.

Jewish Family Services is not only for the Jewish Community. In fact, it is a Jewish value to care for the entire community in which we live, as well as to care for those who share our heritage. With the exception of certain programs that are geared for a Jewish clientele, our services are offered to the greater Edmonton community, and thus our tag line “Help, With Heart, For One and All”.  And we do mean all: any ethnicity or national origin, any religion or no religion, any sexual orientation or identity, any age, any size, any disability (we do our best to accommodate), any socio-economic situation, and any language (we try to find interpreters for those we cannot speak).

Good human service practice responds to the whole person, which includes attending to the person’s spirit when appropriate.  However, good practice also means that professionals respect the belief systems of their clients, and share their own with care and caution.
