Mi Shebeirach List

One of the central Jewish prayers for those who are ill or recovering from illness or injury is the Mi Shebeirach. The prayer takes its name from two words: “mi” and “shebeirach” meaning, “the One" "who blessed.” Whether friends or loved ones are struggling with physical, emotional or spiritual challenges, this prayer speaks to our desire for their healing.

The version of the prayer we sing most often is by Debbie Friedman, ז׳׳ל:

מי שברך אבותינו מקור הברכה לאימותינו
Mi shebeirach avoteinu, m’kor hab’rachah l’imoteinu
[May the One who blessed our fathers, the source of blessing for our mothers,]
May the Source of strength who blessed the ones before us
Help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing
And let us say, Amen.

מי שברך אמותינו מקור הברכה לאבותינו
Mi shebeirach imoteinu, m’kor hab’rachah l’avoteinu
[May the One who blessed our mothers, the source of blessing for our fathers,]
Bless those in need of healing with r'fuah sh'leimah [complete healing]
The renewal of body, the renewal of spirit,
And let us say, Amen
