YIZKOR TABLE PROJECT
Yizkor means “May God remember.”
Yizkor is recited four times a year. Originally, Yizkor was recited only on Yom Kippur and its primary purpose is to honor the deceased by committing to give Tzedakah (charity) or do acts of kindness in their memory. The theory is that the good deeds of the survivor, elevate the souls of their departed.
This year, our Traditional service will feature a Yizkor Table to share your memories.
On Kol Nidre, please bring to the cafeteria a framed picture of a loved one you are remembering. On Yom Kippur, we will take a brief recess, prior to Yizkor, for you to share with those sitting around you words of personal reflections honoring your loved one.
It will be a powerful experience to see pictures of past generations as we invoke Hashem’s blessings for the New Year.
Please be sure to label the picture with your relative’s name and your name, so it finds its way back to you.
