By phone:+1 646 876 9923 US (New York) Meeting ID: 568 226 295
At a time when most of our city is sheltering in place, our doctors, nurses, therapists, and other healthcare workers are wrestling with COVID-19 and what it means to provide care in this new age. With a complete shortage of resources and inadequate means of testing, healthcare professionals are feeling ill-equipped and overwhelmed, struggling with how to best serve a panicked community. Join Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum in a meeting to share experiences and discuss how we can support each other as we make our way through this. This meeting is reserved for healthcare professionals and their family members.
A Prayer for Health Care Workers
May the One who blessed our ancestors
Bless all those who put themselves at risk to care for the sick
Physicians and nurses and orderlies
Technicians and home health aides
EMTs and pharmacists
(And bless especially _______)
Who navigate the unfolding dangers of the world each day,
To tend to those they have sworn to help.
Bless them in their coming home and bless them in their going out.
Ease their fear. Sustain them.
Source of all breath, healer of all beings,
Protect them and restore their hope.
Strengthen them, that they may bring strength;
Keep them in health, that they may bring healing.
Help them know again a time when they can breathe without fear.
Bless the sacred work of their hands.
May this plague pass from among us, speedily and in our days.
- Rabbi Ayelet Cohen, March 2020
