Being in the hospital is always challenging - but on Shabbos, it's hardest of all. Patients feel lonely and vulnerable, and miss the joys of home and family.

Chesed 24/7 transforms the hospital experience, on Shabbos and every day. We bring Shabbos into hospital rooms, by sending a box of Shabbos essentials - electric candles, a Kiddush cup, grape juice; even a table cloth and challah cover. The Shabbos Box gives patients a taste of home. It lifts their spirits and allows them to celebrate. The box is just one thing we do for patients.

Chesed 24/7 delivers fresh kosher meals to patients, operates hospitality rooms in 21 hospitals, and provides a full range of services, from hospital liaisons to pomegranate juice deliveries, and much more. Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, Chesed 24/7 is Constantly Caring.

About Connect For Chesed

During the Connect the Dots campaign, groups will gather to build and fill the actual Shabbos boxes distributed in hospitals. The events will take place in homes and bungalow colonies - and online! Like their location-based counterparts, Chesed Team Members will host events on their personal web pages.

When you donate online, it's as if you personally packed boxes for the sick. You'll even be able to send a refuah sheleimah message to the patients who get your boxes! We'll print your message on an actual card, and put it inside the box, along with the candles, Kiddush cup, and other Shabbos essentials.
