Bikkur Cholim – visiting the sick – and Mi Shebeirach – the prayer for healing -- are two ways our congregation reaches out to support others who are ill. Because of Federal confidentiality regulations (HIPA), hospitals no longer advise the Temple if a congregant is hospitalized. Our Clergy, when asked to do so, visits congregants and close members of their family in local hospitals.       

Many of us rely on community to support us when we are in pain. Each Erev Shabbat, we sing the Mi Shebeirach prayer for those who are ill. The Clergy, when notified of  a congregant, family member or close friend of a congregant who is ill, recites the names and also invites those in attendance to mention the names of those not on the list. When we hear the name of a congregant who is ill, we are offered the opportunity to reach out to them and their family, and to provide support, send a card, or make a friendly phone call to let them know we care.

We invite you to provide us with 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 Shebeirach prayers and by hospital visits. Please complete the form to the right if you have a name to be added to the congregations Mi Shebeirach list.
