The Caring Heart Luncheon is a time to celebrate the mission of ISH by honoring those who embody its values. Through a keynote speaker, who addresses an important health challenge in a spiritual manner, we present the Rabbi Samuel E. Karff Caring Heart Award to an individual or institution that demonstrates similar actions of caring and concern. The event is a powerful reminder of the work being done in our community to increase the presence of spirituality in all aspects of life, especially in times of difficulty.
