Illness & Healing
At Temple Isaiah we support our members during times of illness through the supportive pastoral care and counseling of our clergy and the member-to-member reaching out through our Angel Network. If you or a family member contacts the synagogue to let us know you are in the hospital, a rabbi will visit you there. If you are home-bound because of illness, you will receive a visit at home. After surgery or during chronic illness, you will receive calls from members of our Angel Network to ask if they can bring meals, help get you to doctors’ appointments, bring your children to Religious School, or help with other tasks that will speed your healing and aid your family.
