The festival of Passover celebrates the Jewish people becoming a nation with the leaving of Egypt, going to Mt Sinai to receive the Torah and onto the promised land.
It is a Yizkor holiday and we reflect and remember our loved ones who are no longer with us.
When we recite Yizkor, we renew and strengthen the connection between us and our loved one, bringing merit to the departed souls, elevating them in their celestial homes.
The main component of Yizkor is our private pledge to give charity following the holiday in honor of the deceased. By giving charity, we are performing a positive physical deed in this world, something that the departed can no longer do.
This year as in the past, we will be reciting Yizkor as a community. Yizkor in such a manner brings everyone together as one family and brings an added measure of dignity and merit to the souls of our loved ones.
Yizkor Service will be Held on Shabbat April 7, 2018 at 11:30 am
