Bikur Cholim translates from Hebrew to visiting the sick. Our mission is to connect congregants who can:

  • Visit with those who are ill or homebound.
  • Share some time when someone is lonely.
  • Be a smiling face or helping hand to those who are in need of comfort

Receiving A Visit

What do Bikur Cholim visitors offer you?

A visitor could:

  • Just call to say ‘hello’ or wish you ‘Shabbat Shalom’
  • Visit with you in your home, hospital or nursing home.
  • Share the news, a cup of tea, a book or a song.
  • Call you when they are at the store to offer, “I’m here. What can I pick up for you?”
  • Bring a meal to your family during a difficult time.

If you know someone who is ill, or if you are ill yourself, please click here to email us at Bikur Cholim.
