Book of Remembrance

Throughout the world, Jews traditionally take time to remember their departed loved ones during the High Holy Days. At Congregation Temple Israel, we embrace this tradition by preparing an annual Book of Remembrance. Each year, we invite our congregants to submit the names of their departed loved ones for inclusion in our annual Book of Remembrance.  It is customary to honor their memories with tzedakah (a charitable donation), which is traditionally given in a multiple of $18, which is symbolic of chai (life). 

: 2020 Yom Kippur Yizkor services will be virtual only. Booklets will be available to the congregation in three ways.

  1. Digital PDF - This PDF will be available here on this webpage beginning Wednesday, September 23.
  2. Contactless pick up at the May Chapel entrance vestibule at your convenience beginning on Wednesday, September 23 through Yom Kippur afternoon.  
  3. By mail (only for Temple members who are home bound)
