Jewish Health Resource Center Leaders

“Einstein’s vision is to provide healthcare and education for as many people as we can reach. The JHRC continues that work to meet our mission.”
The guiding principle of Einstein Healthcare Network is to provide outstanding healthcare and education to all who we can reach. The Jewish Health Resource Center will allow Einstein to meet the cultural, spiritual, and religious needs of the community.
- David Jaspan, DO, FACOOG, Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Einstein Healthcare Network

"It is so exciting to have the opportunity to take care of patients in a comfortable and supportive environment. At Einstein, everyone is committed to providing the most up-to-date evidence based medical care in a culturally sensitive way. It is refreshing to be surrounded by colleagues who are eager to understand as much about our customs and traditions as they can so that we can all take care of the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of every patient as a whole. It is truly an honor to come to work every day and be a part of this project."
- Chani Yondorf, MD, JHRC Women's Health Lead

"Einstein started out as the Jewish Hospital, and I am participating in this program to give back to the community, which I am part of, and to the community I grew up in. It’s important to continue that commitment to treat patients with respect and dignity and help them navigate their healthcare in accordance with their faith."
- Randi Zeitzer, MD, JHRC Lead
