Yizkor Memorial Book 5781


    • If you would like to join us for the Yizkor Service, please make seating reservations HERE .

      In keeping with Chabad’s welcoming policy, we’ve always provided ample seating for reserved and walk-in participants alike. Unfortunately, given the circumstances this year, all attendance must be by RESERVATION ONLY, as this is the only way we can follow the County health guidelines. We sincerely apologize but we must insist that only those with prior reservations attend.

    • Dear Friend,

      As strange and disturbing phenomena continue to unfold in the world around us, one of the many things we, as Jews, can be very proud of is the premium we place on memory .  Rather than turn our backs on our past, we go out of our way to revisit it, cherish it, and, above all, learn the valuable lessons it brings to bear upon our current day-to-day lives.  

      One of the most important traditions in which this is evident is in our recital of Yizkor, honoring the memories of our departed loved ones during the prayer services of four major festivals throughout the year: Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Pesach, and Shavuot.

      In addition to asking the Almighty to ‘remember’ the souls of family members and friends who have passed, Yizkor provides us with a vital spiritual connection to them. It transforms their inspiring memory into an active source of light and blessing.  For this reason, part of the Yizkor service includes a pledge to tzedakah, charity – a mitzvah done on behalf their soul, thereby merging our two "worlds".   

      With this in mind, we will once again be publishing a special Yizkor Booklet for the New Year. In addition to the texts of the prayers for various relationships and for the martyrs of recent Jewish history, the booklet will feature the names of the loved ones of our community members. Each name will be included for a gift of $18 (chai) to charity.

      Additionally, every name listed in the booklet will be pronounced during the Yizkor and Keil Malei prayers offered in the synagogue each of the four times of the year – regardless of whether the donor is present in the room or not.

      While much is still up in the air as to how exactly services will be conducted during this unusual year, know that one way or another, Yizkor will be recited by the Rabbi in the sanctuary, and all names in our booklet will be duly invoked, honored, and remembered. 

      To participate, please fill out the form below and submit with your tzedakah in the amount of $18 for each name included. 

    • All completed forms must be submitted no later than Wednesday, September 23 in order to guarantee inclusion in this year's Yizkor Booklet. A copy of the Yizkor booklet will be mailed to you.  

    • With blessings for a happy, healthy, and sweet New Year to you and yours, we remain,


      Rabbi Elly Andrusier
