The Board of Rabbis actively engages in gemilut hasadim (acts of loving kindness) by supporting, developing or administering programs such as the following:
- Our Chaplaincy Commission is responsible for providing ecclesiastical endorsement for candidates for positions as Jewish chaplains in California state prisons, as well as mental health and developmental services institutions. Commission members also assist state official in implementing the mandated Jewish Kosher Meal Plan in California State Prisons.
- The Funeral Practices Committee, consisting of member rabbis and executives from Jewish Mortuaries and Funeral Homes, works to maintain uniformly high standards for Jewish burial rituals and aftercare.
