New Kosher Hospitality Room Coming to RWJUH

We are delighted to let you know that Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital has committed to a new Bikur Cholim room.

We appreciate the assistance of Mr. Kevin McTernan and Rev. Tiina Nummela at Robert Wood Johnson in bringing this about. We wish to give a special thank you to Mrs. Gloria Morris, one of our long-time volunteers, and to her son Mr. Jack Morris, Chairman of the Board of Robert Wood Johnson, for their assistance in making this room a priority for Robert Wood and for their commitment to Bikur Cholim.

The new room, which is part of an on-going capital improvement plan, should be available to us in the next year or so and will feature a kitchen area with full-size fridge, sink and microwave, with table and chairs, shelves and lots of storage.

Thank you!
