WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13:  LAST DATE TO SUBMIT NAMES FOR NEW UPDATED MI SHE-BERACH LIST OF PEOPLE IN NEED OF HEALING:  Beginning on Rosh HaShanah, we will begin a new Mi SheBerach list from scratch to replace the current list. God willing, many of the people on the current list are no longer in need of this healing prayer.  If you would like to include the names of any friends or family members who are in need of healing on the new list, please notify Maryalice at maryalice_chech@yahoo.com or 732-583-1700 in the TBA office by no later than September 13.  All names that were previously submitted will have to be re-submitted if you want them to be included on the new list. NOTE: Only the names of congregants are recited out loud at services; Rabbi Malik will quietly recite the other names of people in need of healing (family members and friends of congregants who are on the list) as part of the Mi SheBerach blessing.
