Yizkor and Kaddish
Yizkor Services and saying Kaddish offer our members an opportunity to remember loved ones who have passed from this life.
Yizkor is the memorial service recited four times a year by the congregation during these Jewish holiday services:
- Yom Kippur Afternoon
Kaddish is recited each Shabbat. Names of loved ones connected to our community who have died in the past month are read as are the names of those whose Yahrzeit (anniversary of a loved ones death) is being observed at that service. Our Temple office maintains a list of all Yahrzeits that have been shared with Temple Habonim. Reminder letters are sent to members observing an upcoming Yahrzeit so they may be sure to be present if they so desire. Please contact our Temple Administrator with any updated information on a Yahrzeit so that our files may be kept current.
