Memorial Board 1 1

Let us know the names and dates of death of your beloved ones who have departed from the Earth. You will get a reminder when the yahrzeit occurs. If you wish, we will add them to our bulletin on the month in which the death occurred and you may also request their names to be read during the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur and during other important holidays.

In Jewish tradition, when the year of mourning is over mourners are expected to return to a fully normal life. There are several occasions each year when our loved ones who have passed on are memorialized. The most significant of these is yahrzeit, the anniversary of the death, which is observed according to the Hebrew calendar. At Congregation Emanu-El of Waukesha many people choose to attend the Shabbat service closest to the Yahrzeit or the Yizkor services held throughout the year.
