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 this online form to make your donation.
In order to ensure that all names submitted are correct and included in the booklet, we must receive your completed form no later than August 31, 2018. No names will be read from the pulpit at the Memorial Service. Names received after August 31, 2018 will not be included in the booklet.
Please include the name(s) of the following in the Yom Kippur Book of Remembrance:
