Bikkur Cholim means visiting the sick or those in need of healing, comfort or connection. Bikkur Cholim also refers to the Mitzvah (Jewish religious commandment) to visit or extend aid to those who are ill. Caring for those in need is an aspect of G’milut Chasadim, an act of selfless loving-kindness. If one is in need of healing, you might recite the Mi Shebeirach prayer.
BCC’s Caring Community (Bikkur Cholim) coordinates outreach to other BCC community members in times of need.
