Shenkman Fellows are top-notch
professionals who dedicate their careers
to end-of-life care for patients and their
loved ones. This distinction is promoted
as a badge of honor — an indication
that recipients have undergone the most
rigorous training and professional
development available, and that they
are on the cutting edge of their field. For
ten years a new designee will be chosen
each year as a Shenkman Fellow.

THE SHENKMAN FELLOW FOR 2011:
RABBI AVIE SHAPIRO

Rabbi Shapiro is a veteran member of
the Jewish Hospice & Chaplaincy
Network's rabbinic team and brings a
calming voice of experience to those
facing the confusion and fear common
at the end of life. "To be allowed by
G-d to bring comfort to people who are
suffering, the patients and their families,"
Rabbi Shapiro says, "is a great blessing."

Rabbi Shapiro may be best known for
his spiritual caregiving to residents of
Jewish Senior Life's Fleischman Residence
where he has served for 23 years.

As a member of JHCN's pastoral care
team, Rabbi Shapiro counsels patients
and staff at St. John Hospice. He assists
with medical issues as they pertain to
Jewish tradition, and provides a
comforting presence for patients and
caregivers alike.

Rabbi Shapiro, a former Hebrew school
teacher for 18 years and a native of
Baltimore, Maryland, made the transi-
tion to caring for the elderly, the sick
and the dying in 1988. He is utilizing
his year as a Shenkman Fellow to hone
his professional caregiving skills and
continues to offer spiritual comfort to
the most vulnerable among us.

Rabbi Shapiro and his wife, Shelly,
have two adult children, Yehudis and
Binyomin.
