Book of Remembrance 5780

Dear Congregant: 
The absence of loved ones who have died can feel especially acute during holidays. At these special times, our memories of those who are no longer physically among us can bring comfort even as our loss feels particularly painful. Judaism recognizes this human truth by incorporating a Yizkor (memorial) service into four central holidays: Yom Kippur, Shimini Atzeret, Passover, and Shavuot. 

At Beth Jacob, the Book of Remembrance is our guide to the Yizkor service. Revised annually and used four times during the year, it contains the text of the Yizkor liturgy, selected readings, and the names of those who are being remembered by members of the congregation.
