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 Sheberach prayers. The Mi Sheberach 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. Traditionally, the Mi Sheberach is said in synagogue when the Torah is read. In modern times, the Mi Sheberach is often said by professional health caregivers, patients, and loved ones at various times during treatment and recovery from illness of all sorts.

to make our lives a blessing
and let us say, Amen.

M’kor hab’rachah laavoteinu.
Bless those in need of healing
with r’fuah sh’leimah,

and let us say, Amen.
