Visiting the Sick (Bikkur Cholim)

In the Talmud, it says that one who visits the sick eliminates one-sixtieth of their pain. Therefore, visiting the sick is an important value at Temple Beth El. The clergy are available to offer support and make regular visits to members of the Temple Beth El congregation and their loved ones who are hospitalized. When the hospital asks for religious and synagogue affiliation during registration, let them know if you are a member of Temple Beth El.

Temple Beth El also has a Bikkur Cholim group made up of caring individuals who make calls and visit fellow congregants in the hospital, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, the homebound, and those with hospice care.
