  1. Dear Jews,

    Contrary to popular belief, it is NOT NECESSARY to know someone’s Hebrew name to pray for him or her.

    For example, if you pray for the healing of Reuven Schachner of Brooklyn, then G_d will know who you are praying for, even without his Ploni ben Plonit Hebrew name.

    This is stated explicitly in tractate Berachot.

  2. The name refoel was added on to reuvain so his new name is Refoel Reuvain ben Raizel
    and Yisroel ben Raizel

    May they and all cholim have refuoh shelaimah bimihairah!
