Tikvat Israel Congregation

A Friendly, Participatory, Egalitarian Conservative Synagogue in Rockville, MD

Bikur Holim

Purpose: Bikur Holim literally means visiting the sick. TI tries to do more than that. We help members of the congregation and their families that are under duress due to illness or other hardship.

Activities: We provide meals when needed and transportation to the doctor or synagogue. We run errands and do what we can to help our fellow congregants.

Seeking New Members: We always can use more volunteers to cook a meal, run errands, make phone calls, visit, and provide rides. People available during the day on weekdays are especially helpful.
