Praying for the Refuah of a Rov or Parent: Do I say name / title?
Posted 14 February 2012 - 07:44 AM
should the person say, "Ploni ben Plonis" ?
Or should the person say, "Avee Moree ben Plonis" ?
2) If the Choleh is a Kohayn or a Levi, is that included in the name?
For example, "Ploni HaKohayn/HaLevi ben Plonis" ?
Or "Avee Moree HaKohayn/HaLevi ben Plonis" ?
3) If a woman Choleh is a Bas Kohayn or a Bas Levi,
one does NOT say "Plonis bas Kohayn/Levi bas Plonis" - correct?

Is a female who is sick called a cholah or a cholanis? I've heard it both ways.
They are both proper words, but they mean 2 different things. Choleh means "a sick person." Cholani means "ailing," or "sickly."
In the MiSheberach, Cholah is the proper word to use. It is feminine for Choleh. Cholanis is the feminine for Cholani. Since we use the word Choleh for a man, we should use the world Cholah for a woman.

Rabbi, if one is praying for one's own child:
Is the proper expression "Bnee Ploni / Beetee Plonis"
(My son, Ploni / My daughter, Plonis) -
or else, the usual expressions, "Ploni ben (Mother's Jewish name)" or "Plonis bas (Mother's Jewish name)" ?
