If it is feasible, and reasonable under current conditions to visit someone you know who is ill, think of ways to lift their spirits and let them know that you have them in mind in your prayers.

To learn more about the source of the mitzvah of bikur cholim, visiting the sick, and ways in which you can fulfill that mitzvah, read this thought from Rabbi Ephraim Z. Buchwald’s Torah message on this week’s Torah portion, Vayeira. Out of respect for the Sabbath, please consider printing it out Friday afternoon if you plan to read it on Shabbat.
