Beginning Sunday night, we’ll observe the Holy day of Yom Kippur. The holiday is observed with the lighting of the Yizkor memorial candle and reciting the Yizkor prayer.
Yizkor, in Hebrew, means “Remember.” It is not only the first word of the prayer, but it also represents its overall theme. In this prayer, we implore G‑d to remember the souls of our relatives and friends who have passed on. When we recite Yizkor, we renew and strengthen the connection between us and our loved ones, bringing merit to the departed souls, and elevating them in their celestial homes.
During the Yizkor service at Daughters of Sarah, we will recite the names of those who are no longer with us, including those with permanent plaques in our shul. Click here to view our 2023 Yom Kippur Book of Remembrance.
G’mar Chatima Tovah! May you be sealed for a good year.
