As a member of our community, you are invited to submit the name(s) of deceased loved ones for inclusion in the Yom Kippur Yizkor service. Each year, we generate a new list. Even if a name has been included in previous years, you must resubmit the information. All names will be listed in the memorial booklet.
Please note the date of death (month and year) if the person to be remembered passed away in the Jewish year 5778. Only the names of those who passed away in 5778 will be read aloud at the Yizkor service that takes place after the Torah is read in the Lev Shalem service.
It is customary to offer a tzedakah donation in memory of those persons whose names are listed. We suggest a donation of $18 for a listing. However, all names are welcome as part of our community’s Yizkor service, whether or not a donation has been made.
You may make your donation online or mail a check to the JCA at 742 Main Street, Amherst MA 01002 made out to “JCA” with Yizkor in the memo line.
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT NAMES FOR YIZKOR BOOKLET IS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27
