On Shabbat and Yom Tov, at the end of the Torah reading, prayers are offered for those who are in need of physical healing. The names of specific individuals are mentioned, and we ask G‑d to heal them. Traditionally, congregants whisper names to the Gabbai, and he repeats the names as part of the prayer service called “Mi Shebeirach” (May He who blessed…). Some people are not healthy for extended periods of time, and their names are kept on a list to be mentioned regularly by the Gabbai.
Please submit your names by filling out the form below. The list will be updated every half a year.
A promise to give charity in the merit of the sick is part of the text of the Mi Shebeirach prayer.
Ideally we need the unwell person’s Hebrew name and their mother’s Hebrew name. If you don’t know the Hebrew names, enter whatever you know.
