Mi Shebeirach

One of the central Jewish prayers for those who are ill or recovering from illness or accidents is the Mi Shebeirach l’cholim. The prayer takes its name from the words: “mi” and “shebeirach” meaning, “the One who blessed.” In this prayer, we pray that the One who blessed our ancestors bring about a complete healing, of body and of spirit, for the person for whom the blessing is said. During our Shabbat and holiday sermons the clergy read names of our community members and their loved ones, who are in need of healing. We also offer the opportunity for anyone present to share names at that time.


Please provide us the name (either English or Hebrew) of your friend and/or loved one whose name you wish us to include. We will keep the person’s name active on our list for a period of thirty days. After 30 days you may resubmit your request if you wish us to continue saying the blessing. In addition, please notify us if the name should be removed from the list earlier by emailing us HERE (rabbis@ohabei.org).

(Please make a separate submission for each person to be added to the list.)

Names remain on our Mi Shebeirach list for 30 days. If you require additional time, please re-submit your request. Thank you.



(*Note – the Mishebeirach prayer can be offered at anytime, and is often comforting to read in Hebrew or English when visiting one who is ill. Above is the text of the prayer. At services, we generally sing the words below, written by Debbie Friedman (z”l).)
