Illness and Healing

If you or a loved one is experiencing a mental or physical downturn, please reach out to the CBI office so our clergy can offer support during a difficult time. Contact Rabbi Alfi's executive assistant, Sandora Di Fiore, by calling (916) 446-4861 or email Sandora.

Our Shabbat Mishebeirach includes the names of those in our community and their loved ones who are ill or recovering their health. To add a name to our healing list for up to four weeks, please contact Sandora with the following information: The name of the person who is ill, your name & your relationship to the individual, and the nature of the illness, as well as any additional information you would like us to have.

The Hineini Committee (formerly the Caring Committee) reaches out to our congregation in times of illness and following the death of loved ones.

The Mi Sheberach prayer is one of the central Jewish prayers for those who are facing the challenge of illness. The prayer includes pleas for both physical and spiritual healing within the community of others facing illness.
