Yizkor
Jun 8 @ 11:00 pm - 11:45 pm

Our service of remembrance, honoring the memories of our loved ones.

This year, for both Yizkor at the end of Pesach and on Shavuot, we will be sharing stories of people who taught us Character in their lives. Loved ones who are no longer with us physically, but ingrained in us values, lessons, and virtues that shape who we are today. If you would like to be part of this experience sand share your story, please contact Marsha Sheinman or Karen Singer.

Please use the following questions to help guide your thoughts.

  1. What would you ask your loved one if they were here today?
  2. How do you think your loved one would like to be remembered?
  3. Share an experience or remembrance that brings a smile or laughter to you now.
  4. What is the image of your loved one that persists with you?
