Shhhh! Hospital Zone
We have a difficult time keeping up with TBK members in hospitals or rehab facilities. The HIPAA privacy rules mean that we sometimes don't know when someone needs a loving touch from TBK.

If you know of someone hospitalized, or if you or someone in your family is planning surgery, please let TBK know. We can carefully check on the wishes of the patient to see if they would like visits, or public recognition on the Mi Shebeirach list.

Please remember when speaking about those with medical issues that some people do not want their private information known by others. This is always a careful balance at TBK, where we know congregants want to support each other. We try to provide information to the congregation when the patient has given permission.
