# 2989 No News is Good News?

Q. Is it proper for a gabay in a shul were they usually say a misheberach for the sick on Shabbos, to include the name of a severely sick new covid patient, if the attendants will become very distressed and sad when they hear that familiar name? Is it better, even if the family asked to mention him, in this particular case to avoid doing it on Shabbos?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a recommended to mention his name quietly when reciting the mi sheberach, so people will not notice and become distressed during Shabbos.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
