About
 
BIKUR CHOLIM OF GREATER WASHINGTON: Since 1997, Bikur Cholim of Greater Washington (BCGW) has brought the healing comfort of community support to the sick and ailing in the Jewish Community in and around Washington, D.C. by sending meals to patients and caregivers,  providing transportation to medical appointments, loaning medical equipment, sending friendly visitors to the sick and the aged and supporting Mier L' Olam kosher hospital pantries located in four area hospitals: Children's National Medical Center, Adventist White Oak Medical Center, Shady Grove Medical Center and Holy Cross Silver Spring and the Children's Inn at NIH.  The BCGW SmileMakers program dedicated in memory of Rabbi Yosef Samberg strengthens   the connection between volunteers and families through special activities, outings and personalized support.  In 2016, BCGW opened the doors of the Bernard Creeger Bikur Cholim House  across the street from The National Institutes of Health. This home  offers  life-saving support and Jewish fellowship to people grappling with severe illness.
 
2020 has been a year like no other. When Covid-19 hit, BCGW stepped up to offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to the Jewish community. This work continues as we settle in to the new normal and prepare for our first Winter during the pandemic.

By offering all our services without cost to the recipient, we free people to focus on their recovery without additional financial stress. When illness strikes our community depends on us and we depend on you.
