Mi Shebeirach Request

One of the central Jewish prayers for those who are ill or recovering from illness or accidents is the Mi Shebeirach. The prayer takes its name from two words: “mi” and “shebeirach” 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 Mi Shebeirach prayer for those in need of healing (physically & spiritually). The Ritual Committee will see that this blessing is said for your relative or friend on Shabbat morning. 

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 office@bellmorejc.org.

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

Please note, where the Hebrew names are not known the English ones are okay. Where the mother’s name is not known but the fathers name is available it should be provided.  

The following fields are for you:

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

May the One who blessed our ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah —
bless and heal the one who is ill: ________________ son/daughter of ________________ .
May the Holy Blessed One overflow with compassion upon him/her,
to restore him/her,
to heal him/her,
to strengthen him/her,
to enliven him/her.
The One will send him/her, speedily,
a complete healing —
healing of the soul and healing of the body —
along with all the ill,
among the people of Israel and all humankind,
soon, speedily, without delay,
and let us all say:  Amen!
