Yizkor Memorial Book

  • Dear Friends,

    We recite the Yizkor prayers on Yom Kippur and on the last day of each of the three Festivals: Passover, Shavuot and Sukkot. We take a moment to reflect, remember, and connect with our loved ones. And we ask G‑d, too, to remember the souls of family and friends who have passed away.

    But we cannot suffice with memory alone, because memory, by definition, relegates the remembered entity to the past. And we must endeavor to keep our loved ones’ legacies alive and present. They must be our inspiration, ever-present in our day-to-day life. As such, we continue to live in the company of their spirits, and they, in the World of Truth, live with us.

    We remember. We are inspired. And we pledge to do good in the merit of their souls. For this reason, the Yizkor service includes a pledge to tzedakah, charity, on behalf of the deceased’s souls.

    This year Chabad of Northwest CT will publish a newly designed Yizkor Memorial Book that will be used at the Yizkor Service on Yom Kippur. We ask you to include the names of your loved ones. It is customary to fulfill the mitzvah of remembering your loved ones and giving tzedakah in their merit. We will mention the names in the Yizkor booklet as a part of the Keil Malei prayer at each of this year’s Yizkor services.It is a beautiful way to honor the memory of our departed loved ones by including their names in this edition. The deadline for inclusion in the Yizkor Memorial Book is September 25, 2020 . The donation for each name is $36.00 Alternatively we offer the opportunity to memorialize a loved one by dedicating a full page in the Yizkor Book.

    We hope you will join us in person on Yom Kippur to hear their names read and recite the Yizkor prayers.
