NAJC is the professional association of Jewish Chaplains. The educational and advocacy efforts the organization makes has helped raise the visibility of Jewish professional Chaplains. With the inauguration of www.najc.com, NAJC has put on a useful and prominent public face.

With educational programs around the country and in Israel, designed to improve the role of professional chaplaincy, this group has made a significant impact on the field. In conjunction with the Spiritual Care Collaborative, NAJC has developed Standards of Practice, adopted a Code of Ethical Practices, along with Common Core Standards for Professional Chaplaincy certification.
