Healing

We invite you to send us the name(s) of loved ones who are facing the challenge of illness, that we may support them, and you, by inclusion in our communal Mi Sheberakh prayers.

The Mi Sheberakh prayer is one of the central Jewish prayers for those who are facing the challenge of illness. The prayer includes pleas for both physical and spiritual healing within the community of others facing illness. We invite you to come to Shabbat services where you will have an opportunity to add the name(s) of someone in need of healing to those we acknowledge when we recite the Mi Sheberakh together as a community.
