Mi Shebeirach


A Mi Shebeirach is a public prayer or blessing offered to someone who is ill, injured, recovering, or otherwise in need. It is typically offered in synagogue during the weekly Shabbat service, while the Torah is being read.

 

The words Mi Shebeirach mean “the one who blessed,” and the prayer asks the one who blessed our ancestors to provide spiritual and physical healing for those in need. We express our hope that God's presence will be with the person in need; that they receive strength and comfort; that those who are providing them care are endowed with insight, skill, and compassion; and that they and their family feel cared for and supported during this time.

Each Shabbat, Rabbi Appel offers a blessing for those who are on the Mi Shebeirach list. If you have a friend or loved one you would like to include, please call the Temple office or fill out the form below.

 

We will keep the person’s name on the Mi Shebeirach list for 30 days, or until you or the person in need makes a request to have their name removed from the list.
