Yizkor Remembrance Service

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 • 10 Tishrei 5779

2:30 PM - 3:15 PM

Jewish mourning is both private and public. When we visit a grave or observe a yahrzeit (the anniversary of a person's death), we generally do so in private. Yizkor is the public observance for the community of bereaved and is recited on Yom Kippur.

Yizkor means… “may (God) remember”.  Its primary purpose is to remember the deceased and it is very appropriate to make a tzedakah  (charity) contribution to honor the loved ones you are remembering. There is a theory that the mitzvah of tzedakah elevates the souls of the departed.

At Beth Chaverim, like most congregations, we publish a booklet of names of those who are remembered by worshipers, to be distributed at the Yizkor services.

We look forward to worshipping with you at this special service.
