Visiting the Sick (Bikur Cholim) Resources - March


 Bikur Cholim

"Historically within Judaism, visiting of the sick (bikur cholim) has always been regarded as a very important community obligation.  According to tradition, when we visit a choleh/cholah (a sick man or woman) 1/60 of the person's illness is alleviated."
