Bikkur Cholim - Understanding and Training of How to be a
Visitor to Those in Need
Session 2 – January 31, February 7 & February 14
Do you question what to say or do when visiting someone in need? How could you feel more comfortable? Congregation Sinai is growing our Chesed program by offering a Bikkur Cholim (Volunteer Visitor) training led by Rabbinic Pastor Aggie Goldenholz. We will learn what the sacred texts teach about visiting the sick. How Jewish law honors the dignity of each person and how to create
opportunities for making each visit a sacred encounter.
Together we will learn about the Jewish laws of visiting the sick, making visits a part of your spiritual practice, how to become comfortable being a friendly visitor, and how you can be a
support to Congregation Sinai by visiting congregants that are homebound, in nursing homes or hospitals.
Cost: Members—free, Non-members $25
