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 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, it is often said by professional health caregivers, patients, and loved ones at various times during treatment and recovery from illness of all sorts.

To add someone to our list which we read every week, please email us:

Healing Service

On Yom Kippur afternoon and as needed throughout the year, Rabbi Goldstein leads a healing service. It is time to gather for reflection, prayer, meditation, singing, and conversation in an intimate setting with our community. During the year, it is held during late afternoon on Shabbat. It is for those who are ill, those who are care givers, those who have loved ones who are ill and anyone wishing to take an hour to think and reflect on health and illness and our own personal vulnerabilities as we go through the journey of life.

May the one who blessed our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, bless and heal those who are ill [names]. May the Blessed Holy One be filled with compassion for their health to be restored and their strength to be revived. May God swiftly send them a complete renewal of body and spirit, and let us say, Amen.
