Borough Park - Jewish volunteer groups battle over Bikur Cholim name

A Jewish volunteer group that helps people at Maimonides and other Brooklyn hospitals is furious that another nearby organization has started using a similar name to solicit donations.

The Bikur Cholim Chesed Volunteer Organization of Borough Park  established more than 50 years ago to help Holocaust survivors — issued a warning against the Guardians of the Sick/Bikur Cholim of Borough Park Organization.

“They are a dismal failure in their work,” the older organization said in an online blast.

But supporters of the newer charity contend it only switched its name after the older organization also changed its title.
