This chapter examines spirituality, suffering, and prayerful presence in relation to end-of-life care in the Jewish tradition, describing the Jewish mourning practices and the stand of Judaism concerning euthanasia, autopsies, and transplantation. It also provides a brief guide to prayerful presence, including pastoral visitation, and explains the Jewish belief that each person has a personal and direct relationship with God. However, Judaism does not place any special sacramental status upon Jewish clergy.

Keywords:   spirituality, suffering, prayerful presence, end of life, Jewish tradition, Judaism, euthanasia, mourning practices, autopsies, transplantation
