YIZKOR BOOKLET                                      

Kehilat Hakerem prepares a special booklet for Yizkor that includes the memorial prayers and the names of our loved ones whom we want to remember.

Jewish tradition teaches us to make a charitable donation in their memory before Yom Kippur. Adding the names of your loved ones to our booklet is one way to fulfill this mitzvah. The cost for each name is NIS 20.
