Today we offer a special Mi Sheberach (a prayer for healing) for ourselves and our planet together. The Jewish morning blessing for our health talks about the human body’s pathways and openings. Like us, the earth’s pathways and openings are vital to its health. Our planet is in need of healing as are we.
