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. 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.  Our newest project -- The Bernard Creeger Bikur Cholim House -- presents a once-in -a-lifetime opportunity to deepen our work, offering life-saving support and Jewish fellowship to people grappling with severe illness.
 

THE BERNARD CREEGER BIKUR CHOLIM HOUSE, purchased with the generosity of several leadership donors in July 2015, sits directly across the street from the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, Md. It offers Jewish families from around the world the opportunity to reach for lifesaving treatments, eliminating the roadblocks that too often make the journey impossible. With the embrace and support of the community, a place to stay, meals, and compassionate support, the Bernard Creeger Bikur Cholim House has  become a home of hope and healing to those in the most challenging moments of their lives. With your support it will be able to continue its life saving work . 

Bikur Cholim of Greater Washington is a 501(c) (3) non-profit, Jewish volunteer based service organization that provides assistance to people facing medical and related challenges.


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.
 
Thank you for your support.
