Rabbi Levi Meier Memorial Service

All Medical Staff Members Welcome to Attend

All members of the medical staff are invited to attend a special memorial service for Jewish Chaplain Rabbi Levi Meier on Monday, Sept. 15, beginning at 12 p.m. in Harvey Morse Auditorium (doors open at 11:30 a.m.). Rabbi Meier passed away in July following a long illness.

Widely regarded by those who knew him as "the heart and soul" of Cedars-Sinai, Rabbi Meier first came to the medical center in 1978. He served as the hospital's chaplain and spiritual leader for the next 30 years, guided by his own personal motto of "and be a blessing," taken from Genesis.

Rabbi Meier was a biblical scholar and published author, as well as a clinical psychologist who earned his doctorate in psychology from USC. Deeply interested in medical ethics and the synthesis of Judaism and psychology, he convened annual "Psychology and Judaism" conferences at Cedars-Sinai with guest lecturers and panel discussions.

He was born June 30, 1946, in New York City and studied at Yeshiva University in New York.
