Caring Community

Bikkur Cholim (Visiting the Sick)

At Sha’ar Zahav, we show up for each other, in both care and celebration. The mitzvah of bikkur cholim (visiting the sick) can be as simple as making a call, helping with an errand, making a home visit, offering a ride or delivering a meal.

In order to learn when an opportunity to help a fellow Sha’ar Zahav member arises, you are invited to sign up with Lotsa Helping Hands.


Once you sign up, you will receive notifications when there is a need.

If you have a need yourself or have questions about bikkur cholim, contact us at or Adam Pollack, Director of Engagement at or (415) 610-5083.


Caregivers Group

Sha’ar Zahav also hosts a weekly caregivers group for those taking care of an ill loved one. Please contact Rabbi Ted Riter at to learn more about this group.
