Yizkor, which translates to "remembrance" is a special Jewish memorial service and prayer to honor the deceased. It is most commonly said for a parent, child, sibling or spouse, but can also be recited for any relative or close friend. Yizkor serves as a time of reflection for those participating in the service, helping us remember our loved ones, keeping them present in our minds and hearts.  Yizkor is founded on two fundamental Jewish beliefs; one, that the prayers and actions of people in this world can have an elevating spiritual effect on the souls of the departed, and two, that it is our mission to make the world a kinder, better, more beautiful place. In Jewish life, this pursuit of kindness is known as olam chesed yibaneh, "to build a world of kindness." Join us for an afternoon Yizkor service for all of us experiencing loss.  A pdf of the prayer booklet will be emailed to registrants beforehand to allow printing a physical copy, and will also be screen-shared during the service itself.
