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.
