May G-d remember the soul of my departed loved one, 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 offers 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. Rabbi Kelman will recite the Yizkor Service, including a special memorial prayer for all those listed by name.
For $18 per name, your loved one will be included for Yizkor of both Yom Kippur and Shemini Atzeret.
