Resetting the Misheberach List

The standing Misheberach list has become very out of date with many names on it which should have been removed long ago, and names which the Gabbaim cannot identify. Please resubmit your names for Misheberach via our website www.SkokieChabad.org/misheberach or by speaking to our Gabbai, Zvi Weiss. He would be happy to help you review the list on the Bima to make sure it is up to date. Names on the list which are not claimed will be removed.
