In Biblical times, each year every Jew was required to contribute a half-shekel for the maintenance of our Holy Temple. The rich did not give more, nor the poor less, so that every person would have an equal share in the service. The collection would take place in this month of Adar, so as to be ready for Pesach.
KBR needs your help! The last year has been tough financially, and our reserves are low. If every one of our regular supporters would give an extra $50 as a “half-shekel” it would be enough to put us back on track. Please help us meet our goal in time for Pesach.

May G-d remember the soul of my departed loved on, who has gone on to his or her world, because, without making a vow, I shall give to charity on his or her behalf. -The Yizkor Prayer
Four times a year (Passover, Shavuot, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot), we remember our loved ones who have gone to their eternal home in the Yizkor prayer. As part of the Yizkor service, we give charity so that the merit of our mitzvah can be an elevation for their souls.
Kol BeRamah is introducing a wonderful opportunity for performing this mitzvah. By pledging now, in advance of the holiday, you can have your loved ones listed in our Virtual Yizkor Book. During the Yizkor service at Kol BeRamah, we will be saying a special memorial prayer for all those listed, by name.
For only $18 per name, your loved one will be included for Yizkor of both Passover and Shavuot.
