Yizkor is a memorial prayer recited four times a year: on Yom Kippur, Shmini Atzeret (at the end of Sukkot), the last days of Passover and Shavuot. Our tradition teaches us that family members who are no longer in this world still maintain a powerful spiritual connection to the living, and that reciting prayers and giving tzedakah on their behalf can bring them eternal benefit.
The word Yizkor means “to remember”. When we recite the Yizkor prayer we pledge to give charity in the merit of the deceased. By donating to CEEW in honor of Yizkor, you will bring great benefit to both the living and the departed.
This year, because of all the extra complications involved with recording services, please submit names by September 13.
Checks for donations can be mailed to CEEW
