We will be having a Yizkor (Memorial) Service on Yom Kippur, Wednesday, October 5, at noon. This year the Yizkor service will be virtual. Everyone registered will receive the zoom link beforehand. Yizkor is an opportunity for us to join together in community as we each individually remember our departed loved ones.
Here is a link to an interesting and informative article about the practice of Yizkor by Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand: https://reformjudaism.org/yizkor-remembering-through-forgetting.
During the Yizkor service, the names of our community’s loved ones are read aloud from a book to which you are encouraged to submit names in advance. The deadline to be included in the e-book that will be shared before the event is Wednesday, October 2, at noon. This is also an opportunity for you to remember your loved ones by making a memorial donation to CKH.
Donations are not required to list names but are so very much appreciated. Suggested donation $100 per family for any number of names listed in the book.
Please fill out this form to submit your loved one’s names to the Yizkor Book.
