Changes in privacy laws now restrict hospital chaplain offices from notifying Temple Israel about congregants who are patients. We want to visit our members. You can help us keep in contact by:

  • Calling Temple Israel prior to a scheduled hospital stay
  • During admissions, inform the hospital staff of your Temple Israel affiliation and give permission for your name to be released to the Temple Israel office
  • If you are unexpectedly admitted to the hospital, ask a family member or friend to call Temple Israel.
  • Call and tell us if someone you know is ill or in the hospital and might be helped by a visit or telephone call.

Help us keep in contact with our Temple Israel family!

Hospital Visits

Should you or a loved one experience a stay in the hospital, please let the hospital know that you are Jewish and would welcome a clergy visit or have a family member call the Temple directly. Rabbi Azriel, Rabbi Brown and Cantor Shermet make regular hospital visits but they can only see you there if they know you are a patient.

Mishebeirach Prayer List 

On Shabbat, the clergy reads the names of those who need a prayer for healing. If you would like to have your name read or that of a loved one, please contact the clergy.  Please do not submit a name for the mishebeirach list if you do not have that person’s permission.
