Any ideas for a shabbat spent at the hospital?

Emet | Apr 18, 2004 04:20 PM

Hi everyone,

I hope everybody had a great Pesach! I have a huge favor to ask, my friend is going for a surgery and will be staying at the hospital for a full month.

Now, the hospital is 2 hours walk from the closest Jcommunity. I need ideas on what to do to make his Shabbat more enjoyable while he is at the hospital.

I know we are supposed to talk only about food on the forum, however if you have particular ideas not related to food, please feel free to send me an email.

Food wise, I am sure the hospital will be able to warm up the food that I am planning to prepare for him. I dont see any problems other than the wrapping. If you can think of any other hallachic issues, please feel free to mention it to me.

I am thinking of possibly making small pastillas, soups, Cholent / Tefinah, deserts

Any ideas, recipes? I need plenty as he will be spending a minimum of 4 shabbos at the hospital, Thanks a bunch!
