Bikur Cholim of Raritan Valley held its Annual Event breakfast at The Pines Manor on February 11, 2018.
This year’s event celebrated the opening of the Bikur Cholim Guest Residence. The fully furnished apartment, which Bikur Cholim has secured, is designated for patients and their families who travel from abroad for medical treatment at ProCure Proton Therapy Center or one of the area hospitals.
Bikur Cholim had the pleasure of honoring two very special couples for their years of service to Bikur Cholim and the community. Moshe and Debbie Schneider were the distinguished Guests of Honor and Shalom and Yardena Cohen were the well deserving Gomlei Chesed awardees. Mr. Mitch Rottenstreich served as MC, Rabbi Efrayim Unterman of the Young Israel of East Brunswick gave the Rabbi’s message and Rabbi Ephrayim Eliyahu Shapiro was the inspirational guest speaker.
The Annual Event is an important source of funding for the activities of Bikur Cholim. Over 300 people attended the event.
