Honoring the memory of family & friends
Recognize your departed loved ones during Yizkor services.
This year’s Yizkor Booklet has now closed
Each year at the Yom Kippur Yizkor service we honor the memory of deceased family members and friends. As in past years, the Ritual Committee will again prepare a Yizkor booklet that lists the names of departed loved ones being remembered by CBH congregants, as well as loved ones who passed away during the past year. The booklet will also contain passages and readings appropriate to the memorial service.
This book will be used again for Yizkor services in the balance of the year, for Yom Kippur (on September 16), Sukkot, Pesach, and Shavuot. If our services are going to be a hybrid of in-person and on-line, then we will produce both a print and an electronic booklet, which will be available from this page to download.Download the 5782 Yizkor booklet
Each booklet listing includes the dates of the loved ones’ lives and their relationship to those remembering them, as in the following example:
