Transformative Education in Spiritual Care

Join us to honor Linda S. Golding with the Pastoral Care Leadership Award and Harold Wolfe with the Charles H. Revson Award.

About Linda S. Golding

Chaplain Linda S. Golding received her Master’s Degree in Jewish Studies and the Certificate in Pastoral Care and Counseling from The Jewish Theological Seminary in Spring 2013 and became a board certified chaplain through the Association of Professional Chaplains in 2014.

Golding has served as Staff Chaplain and Coordinator at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center since 2010, caring for patients, families, and staff throughout the adult and children’s hospital.  She is the chaplain member of the hospital’s Ethics Committee and its Organ Donor Council and leads regular didactics for chaplains, nurses, doctors and medical students, as well as workshops and webinars for peers and colleagues.

Named a member of the inaugural 2020-21 REACH fellowship program sponsored by New York-Presbyterian and ICAP under the aegis of the Dalio Center for Health Justice, Golding’s Capstone Project is “VitalForce: An Everyday Readiness Plan for Spiritual and Emotional Well-being.” She also led the 2021 Luce Foundation-funded program “The Body Knows,” a pilot to provide support to frontline hospital staff.

She is an adjunct professor in the Bioethics program at Columbia University, where she teaches Hope, Meaning, and Clinical Ethics, at JTS (Pastoral Torah of Dying and Death), at Union Theological Seminary (Professional Ethics for Spiritual Care and Ministry), and upcoming at the Columbia University School of Nursing (Foundations in Spirituality for Health Care).

Publications include Spiritual Care with Non-Communicative Patients: A Guidebook (Hachette/Jessica Kingsley Publishers 2019) and “The Evolving Role of Hospital Chaplains at the End of Life,” co-authored with The Reverend Martha R. Jacobs in Our Changing Journey to the End (Praeger/ABC-CLIO 2014).
