Merlyn Kinrade – thank you for standing with us UNITED in suport of Canada, Israel and all other decent, free and democratic societies…
Merlyn Kinrad has cancer. Last Friday, he drove from London to join the JDL counter protest at the Israel Consulate in Toronto. Merlyn needs our prayers.
Jewish tradition ordains that whenever the Torah is read we are granted a special and uniquely opportune moment to invoke blessing for those in need of divine intervention. From time immemorial it has therefore been the custom to recite a “Mi Sheberach” (prayer for the sick) on behalf of people who are ill.
A Prayer
Mi sheberakh avoteinu mekor habrakha l’imoteinu
May the Source of strength
Who blessed the ones before us
Help us find the courage
To make our lives a blessing,
And let us say: Amen.
Mi sheberakh imoteinu mekor habrakha l’avoteinu
Bless those in need of healing With refuah shleima:
The renewal of body,
The renewal of spirit,
And let us say: Amen

  1. Dear JDL:

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayer for Merlyn, and for the Israel flag you gave him. It means so much to me/us. Merlyn has been a rock for us in Caledonia, and he is one of the finest people I have ever known in my life, and he cares greatly for Israel and the Jewish people.

    When others say, ‘I can’t get involved because of my kids, Merlyn said, ‘I must get involved because of my kids!’

    I can tell you that, despite his difficulties, standing with you at the Israel Consulate was so important to him, and it was something he wanted to do.

    Here’s an article by Christie Blatchford, author of ‘Helpless: Caledonia’s Nightmare of Fear And Anarchy, And How The Law Failed All Of Us,’ wrote about him (Merlyn is mentioned in her book, including the time we first met on Jan 20/07):
