In conclusion, this article has been an initial attempt by two NAJC Board-Certified Rabbis to present some key points about Judaism and Jewish thought in a way that will be helpful to non-Jewish CPE supervisors and chaplains in their work with Jewish supervisees and patients (residents, et al). It is very consciously a brief overview of the issues, and it highlights only those concerns specified by the many former Jewish CPE supervisees and patients (residents, et al) who have been canvassed during the course of six years. There are many other areas that deserve consideration, which time and space do not allow us to develop more fully.

Accepting how Jews in mainstream Jewish communities are likely to understand Judaism and being Jewish will help bridge the gap of the “two nations separated by a common language.”
