In Crown Heights there is a Kingsbrook Jewish nursing home where there is minyan every Shabbos, and they are always in need of people to help visit and feed patients. We know that Bikur Cholim takes away 1/60th of the sickness. The mitzvah of bikur cholim is so great a person who does this great mitzvah merits Olem Haba. In the Zechus of this great Mitzvah which is considered "Chesed Shel Emes", Hashem should grant a speedy recovery to Rochie. May Hashem Yisbarach have Rachmim! Ad mosai ad mosai enough is enough we need the Geula!
To volunteer contact Michoel Chazzan 718-604-5530

Just to comment on the previous post, I have been thinking the past few days of organizing people to go to the Kings Brook nursing home, as practically every Shabbos, as an elementary and high school girl Rochie volunteered her Shabbos to go to this nursing home and to bring some joy and happiness to the patients, either through singing, feeding, smiling and wishing them a Good Shabbos or just plain old encouragement for the patients families. To the previous comment: YOUR COMMENT AND SUGGESTION COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE APPROPRIATE!!

Rochie, as i think of you, i hear your voice full of encouragement and positivity and i see your warm and friendly smile. Rochie you are in my mind and my tefillos constantly. In your merit i am going to put extra kavana into the brocha of refoeinu 3 times a day BLN. Throughout the day as i am confronted my life's everyday choices, I keep thinking of you and it really helps me to choose the better option. Refuah Shleima Rochie. Tracht gut vet zein gut. Teshuas Hashem Kheref ayin.

Rochie, a truly positive person you are - I am going to try to see the positive in people and the situations around me, rather than being quick to be critical and judgmental. Hashem should see how your friends around you are adding in so many good ways and give you a quick complete recovery NOW!!!!

I take upon myself to think a positive thought about a about any person I may be inclined to judge. I also have added a daily Tehillim segment for a Refuah Sheleima for Rochie. Hashem, please see the unity of Your people in Rochie's merit and take down any barriers for a full and speedy recovery for Rochie right now!



I have said tehillim in her merit.
The Alter of Novardhok once advised the relatives of a sick person to hire two bachurs to say Amen Yehei Shemei Rabba with complete kavannah to merit a complete recovery for their family member. Our Sages promise explicitly that this said with kavannah nullifies evil decrees. While this sounds entirely simplistic, it must be taken very seriously as these are the words of chazal.
The children who attend her shul should also be gathered and told to answer to the kaddish (with the encouragement of a little candy and an understanding of the prayer's importance) enthusiastically. This has proven to be tremendously helpful not only for the recovery of ill people but also for childless couples. For more information on the power of Amen, please refer to Esther Stern's book, "Just one word-Amen". May she merit refuah b'ruchnios and b'gashmius. AMEN!!!
