Bikur Cholim || בִּיקּוּר חוֹלִים || Visiting the Sick

  • We must visit friends who are sick, provide for them, cheer them up and pray for them. 
  • One must visit whether the person is rich, poor, young or old. 
  • Hashem visited Abraham after his בְּרִית מִילָה.
  • A special prayer may be said by the reading of the Torah for a sick person. This prayer is called מִי שֶׁבֵּרַךְ. 
  • It is also customary to give צְדָקָה in merit of the sick and wish them a רְפוּאָה שְׁלֵמָה — a complete recovery.
