The form for this year’s booklet will be open through Tuesday, August 31, 2021. It will be available for download and at services by September 16. Service for Yizkor will held during Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Pesach, and Shavuot; dates will be announced in advance, and the booklet will be used for each observance. Please come to remember to help make a minyan, so others may be supported in their memories.

This year’s Yizkor Booklet is now open

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. Because our services are going to be a hybrid of in-person and on-line, this year we will produce both a print and an electronic booklet, which will be available from this page to download.

Each booklet listing includes the dates of the loved ones’ lives and their relationship to those remembering them, as in the following example:

                              Remembered by Abe and Sophie Katz:

                                     Jacob Katz (1947–2009) — their son

                                     Ruth Goodman (1913–1989) — Sophie’s mother

                                     Julius Sachs (1917–1991) — Abe’s uncle

                                     Joseph Stein (1937–2006) — their friend

  • An asterisk follows many headings, to indicate that this is required information.

    Please submit your entries by Friday, August 26, at 3 p.m.

    We expect to have the electronic version ready in advance, and the paper version available at the Yizkor Service on September 16, Yom Kippur.
