IF YOU WOULD LIKE ANYTHING ADDED
TO OUR ANNOUNCEMENTS,
PLEASE LET THE RABBI KNOW BY WEDNESDAY EACH WEEK.


HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is to guarantee patient privacy, which is good for the patient because it protects their confidentiality, but not very helpful when the Temple is trying to find patients. Please do not assume that we know you are in the hospital or that the Chaplains Office has contacted the Temple or the Rabbi, even if a chaplain has visited you. PLEASE, I want to be able to visit you. I want to be able to offer you the solace and perspective of our tradition. The Temple wants to let you know that we care, but that can only happen when we know where you are. 

Thank you,

Rabbi Raina Siroty
Congregation Gemiluth Chassodim | Rabbi Cantor Raina Siroty | 318.445.3655
