  We are here for you and your family at ALL times.

 

  Hospital Visitation: At Chabad of Battery Park City, we realize how frightening, overwhelming or simply lonesome being in the hospital can be, and that’s why we put such emphasis on visiting people in the hospital and bringing them a gift package with goodies. Our volunteers have visited numerous hospitals and senior homes bringing joy to many patients.

With the friendship we have established with Beth Israel (Children's) Hospital through our annual "Chanukah Toy Drive", we have brought so many smiles to precious children's faces.

You Can Make a Difference in the Life of Another: Visit with the homebound, pick up groceries, drive an elderly patient to a doctor's appointment. Bring them your warmth and smile and make their day. Volunteer once a month or more. To get started please call us at 646.770.3636 or Email  Rabbi@ChabadBPC.com and we will put you in touch with someone you can help. 

 


  The Jewish Home

 

Mezuzot Checking: A Mezuzah is so much more than a piece of parchment rolled into a scroll. Since the Mezuzah acts as our own personal guardian, it’s important to ensure that it is always in top condition. We will check your Mezuzot at any given time to ensure that they are Kosher.

Kashering: Keeping Kosher is one of the most fundamental aspects of our religion. Kashering is the process of transforming your kitchen into one that meets all the standards of Kashrut.

Tefillin Inspection:Wrapped around our arms in those square black boxes, it’s easy to forget how holy Tefillin are. Containing the name of Hashem, each time we wrap ourselves in those black straps we are forging a bond with our Creator. Like Mezuzot, Tefillin contain holy parchments that need to be checked from time to time to ensure they are fit for use.  

Drop your Tefillin off and we’ll check them thoroughly and return them to you.
