As an RN in the community, I saw Bikur Cholim responding to needs that were not otherwise available to our people.
I grew up in a home that saw Bikur Cholim being done on a daily basis and always wanted to emulate my parents’ home.
When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, but it changes the world.
My mother, Hinda Karmel, one of the founders of this branch of Bikur Cholim, believed that chesed (giving or getting) is vital to us as individuals and helps us thrive as a nation. I grew up in a home that saw Bikur Cholim being done on a daily basis and always wanted to emulate my parents’ home.
In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
I joined Bikur Cholim following my mother’s role model both in Columbia, South America and the US. I continued because I saw and continue to see how much we are needed and the happiness we bring to those we help.
Kindness – it costs nothing but means everything
