Mitzvah Kids

Bikur Cholim offers several opportunities for kids to get involved in helping those in our community.

Kids Helping Kids – While most children are going to school or with their friends, there are many who spend most of their time at the doctor or in a hospital. For a child suffering from illness; whether it be their own or that of a family member, the gift of a smile can make it seem so much better. On your child's next birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, or any other special occasion, we ask that they choose a gift and donate it to Bikur Cholim. Every new unwrapped gift we receive will go to a child in need of smile.

Challah Cover Machers – To help enhance our Challah Shel Bracha program, we have children make hand-decorated challah covers that get delivered with our weekly Challahs to cholim, elderly, and frail throughout the community. These bright and festive designs brighten Shabbos tables for so many and let the recipients know that they are in the hearts and minds of others, during times when it’s needed most.

If you would like your child to participate in this very meaningful program please call (323) 852-1900 or email us at
