On Yom Kippur, we recite the Yizkor (Memorial) Prayers, and our minds and hearts turn to the sacred memory of departed loved ones. To render these moments more intimate and meaningful, it is Congregation Beth Israel’s longstanding custom to distribute our Book of Remembrance, in which we list the names of our deceased. This book includes prayers and meditations selected by our clergy and a special page memorializing those members of our congregational family who have died since last Yom Kippur. We also list the names and remembrances of those who choose to donate to CBI in honor of their departed loved ones.
The deadline for the 5783 Book of Remembrance will be Monday, September 19; we must have your entry by that date if you wish your loved ones to be included.
The 5873 Book of Remembrance will be distributed at our Yom Kippur Yizkor Service; a version will be available online for those who wish it.
Please let us know if you have any questions, either by calling (503) 222-1069 or conecting with us f you have any questions, via email.
