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.
- Describe a most vivid memory of your loved one.
- Share a lesson that your loved one taught you that still resonates in your life.
- Share a challenging interaction you had with your loved one, and how that either was resolved or not before they died. Describe how you feel about that.
