Congregant volunteers supplement clergy hospital visits and help keep those in the hospital company during their stay. Remember that privacy laws prevent the hospital from providing information to us. If you, a loved one or friend is in the hospital and would like visitors, please let us know by emailing Theresa Hurt or calling the Rabbinic Department at (214) 939-7314.
You can’t always bring someone food in the hospital because patients may be on restricted diets but you can always bring good cheer. And remember, laughter is the best medicine. It’s ok if you can’t stay long. Just a quick visit to sit down for a moment and say hello, bringing your warm smile and best wishes for a refuah shelayma, a complete and speedy recovery, is a tremendous comfort and a big mitzvah!
