Strength and hope
At Congregation B’nai Israel, our clergy are always available to offer rabbinical assistance, prayer, or counseling. If you are in need of assistance, whether it is for a joyous occasion, a sorrowful loss, or you need guidance and counseling, we are here to help.
One of the central Jewish prayers for those who are ill or recovering from illness or accidents is the Misheberach. The prayer takes its name from two words: “mi" and "sheberach” meaning, “the One who blessed.” It asks that the One who blessed our ancestors bring about a complete healing for the person for whom the blessing is said. On Shabbat and Festivals we offer the Misheberach prayer for those in need of healing (physically & spiritually).
