The Yizkor prayers are said in the Synagogue on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement and on the last day of each of the Festivals of Passover, Shavu'ot and Sukkot. In these prayers we ask G-d to 'remember' the souls of family and friends who have passed away. Yizkor, to remember, also provides us with a special opportunity to connect with our loved ones.
We can ensure that your loved ones are indeed remembered at these 4 times.
Memory is especially powerful when the past can be an inspiration. When we remember them in our physical life, their life is not just a passive memory, but becomes active and their light eternal. For those who have passed on, they merit the continuous impact in both the physical world and the spiritual world-to-come. For this reason part of the Yizkor service includes a pledge to Tzedakah, charity, a Mitzvah done on behalf of the deceased's soul.
With this in mind, we will be creating a Yizkor booklet including the names of our loved ones.
This year we are honoured to have the return of Chazan Berel Zucker and his quartet return who will enhance the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur.
To participate, Please complete the ONLINE FORM in memory of your loved one(s) who we know are especially missed at this time of the year.
