PASSOVER PROGRAMS

BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE

The Book of Remembrance lists those close to us who have passed away, but who have not been forgotten. It is published in the fall and spring of each year. It is distributed to congregants on the four days on which we recite Yizkor, the memorial service: the last day of Passover, the second day of Shavuot, Yom Kippur, and Shemini Atzeret. When recalling the memories of our loved ones during the Yizkor service, we pledge charity to perpetuate their ideals. In this booklet, there is a tangible place for each of us to publicly remember those we miss.
