Hospital Shabbos Closets & Shabboxes

For those patients and family members who find themselves in an emergency hospital admission leaving them unprepared, we have Bikur Cholim Closets located in hospitals throughout our City. Each Closet provides an extensive assortment of nonperishable kosher food items that offer anything from a snack to a complete Shabbos meal.

Working together with Hatzolah, Bikur Cholim has equipped their emergency response vehicles with Shabboxes for those patients whom find themselves transported to an ER with no access to kosher foods. These packages contain an ample amount of shelf-stable meals and snacks until a patient is able to obtain kosher meals.

To find out how to become a Shabbos Closet or Shabbox sponsor please call us at (323) 852-1900 or email
