Bikur Cholim

Imagine being alone and sick in the hospital in Israel. No family or friends around, not understanding Hebrew. It can be a very scary time, so that's why when Olim are sick they turn to the volunteers of KeepOlim Bikur Cholim Program to keep them company and cheer them up. Led by Joan Berman Shrensky, the volunteers are fulfilling the mitzvah of visiting and helping the sick, accompanying them to doctors and even cooking for them with love and care.

Thanks to Joan Berman Shrensky, who heads  Bikkur Cholim, my request for food was answered. Natty has just left my home, not only leaving my freezer full, but with such grace as she packaged everything into meal size portions. - Adriane Rivka Wolfson Bernstein.

 

Beverley Zamit Thank you Liami, and to everyone who has been helping and supporting me through this trying time. I am so grateful and blessed to have such kind, caring people come into my life. I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you, and may Hashem bless you all and provide you with an abundance of prosperity in which ever way you may need it. Beverley

Overwhelmed is a word I've used a lot since my accident. Now to add speechless. Thanks to Joan Berman Shrensky, who heads the bikkur holim section of KOIM, my request for food was answered. Natty has just left my home, not only leaving my freezer full, but with such grace as she packaged everything into meal size portions. I have a very difficult eating plan, to keep my fibro in remission, and the amount of imagination and love used to create my food is incredible. Just reading the ingredients used in each dish makes my mouth water. Thanks Natty. I am so very grateful and promise to pay it forward in the best way I can. Chag sameach and wishing you a wonderful 2017.
