Rabbi David J. Zucker will retire as full-time chaplain at Shalom Cares (formerly Shalom Park) at the end of June.
Rabbi Steven J. Rubenstein of Massachusetts will become the full-time rabbi for residents and patients at Shalom Cares starting in July.
Rabbi Zucker began his career at the Shalom Park Nursing Home in 1993. Since then, his “congregation” has grown to include residents and family members, both Jewish and non-Jewish.
For more than 18 years, Rabbi Zucker has been responsible for all rabbinical duties, has officiated at lifecycle events for residents and family members, and has celebrated an abundance of Jewish holidays.
