Illness & Healing

Illness is a universal human experience, and the Knesset Israel community tries to support those in need of healing. Our Shabbat morning services feature prayers for healing; our rabbi and volunteers visit the sick at Berkshire Medical Center; Hebrew School and youth group participants spend time with the elderly; and members of Knesset Israel lead shabbat and holiday services at local nursing homes. Many in our congregation are doctors and nurses, deeply engaged in the work of healing.

Please reach out to our rabbi if you or a loved one is going to be in the hospital or if you are seeking pastoral care. Rabbi Weiner still makes house calls.
