Hashem visited Avraham after his Brit Milah. The kindness that Hashem displayed has inspired the Jewish people over the centuries to show kindness to those who are ill. This significant mitzvah has always been a part of the Jewish heart and soul. The Bikur Cholim of Great Neck was established in 1988. Our members bring comfort, hope and understanding to the sick and/or elderly. We often shop for them and at times take them to their physicians. Sometimes volunteers will shop with the disabled or depressed patient. During the holidays, our volunteers blow shofar for shut-ins and help the sick perform religious obligations during Succot and other holidays. When possible, we help the patients prepare for Shabbat. We are members of the Coordinating Council of the Bikur Cholim of Greater New York, devoted to “compassionate care for the sick, frail and homebound.” We welcome your participation and look forward to hearing from you. If you wish to volunteer or need help yourself or for a loved one, please contact Diane Rein (516) 522-1262 and click HERE for volunteer form.
Our guiding philosophy is that the Torah is the word of God, and therefore applicable to all social situations in all ages. The Great Neck Synagogue believes:
- Our Torah is the word of God.
- The Torah which has patterned the life of the Jewish people for almost 3500 years, through all social changes, is today the major vital progressive force in Jewish existence.
- Jewish survival in a world that has been actively hostile for thousands of years is not a freak of history but rather the predictable historical future of a religious people whose strength and resiliency are intrinsic in its pattern of living – the ever modern Torah way of life.
