As in years past, we shall have a Book of Remembrance for the Memorial Service on Yom Kippur, listing the names of our departed loved ones. This booklet is also used throughout the year at other Memorial Services. According to Judaic tradition, "repentance, prayer and charity (Teshuvah, Tefilah, and Tzedakah) temper judgments severe decree." Through these mitzvot, Jews seek to re-establish their relationship with God and with other human beings and accomplish reconciliation with both. Therefore it is appropriate to give to charity before the High Holy Days to improve the spiritual and/or the material well-being of the community.
One way in which we may contribute to charity is by inscribing the name of your departed loved ones in Shalom's Memorial Book. Contributions are voluntary and the amount is left to your discretion. You may use the form below to submit the names for the Book of Remembrance.
In order to insure that all names submitted are correct and included in the booklet, it is necessary to begin the processing no later than September 6, 2019. No names will be read from the pulpit at the Memorial Service. Names received after September 6, 2019 will not be included in the booklet. You can avoid disappointment by submitting the form below, no later than September 6, 2019.
Please include the name(s) of the following in the Yom Kippur Book of Remembrance:
