Important information regarding Yizkor on Yom Kippur
The act of remembering our beloved departed ones is an age old practice.
For many years at our Shul we have remembered the names at our Yizkor service on Yom Kippur through the recitation of the names in our several services in the Shul complex and at Bernays Institute.
In 2009 we adopted the custom practised by many other communities of perpetuating the memory of loved ones in the tangible form of a Book of Remembrance which we believe is more dignified than the calling out of a long list of names when Yizkor is recited.
Please read the HE's [Explanatory Paper]
This Book of Remembrance allows members to read the names and recollect their loved ones at Yizkor time as well as during the solemn day of Yom Kippur.
Each year a new Book of Remembrance will be printed to include all the names that our members wish to be recorded. It will be placed on each seat in all adult services and may be taken home after Yom Kippur has concluded.
If you had an entry in last year's Book of Remembrance you will have received by post a copy of the information we included last year.
If you would like to include an entry again this year please check the information and note any changes you would like to make. You will see that we would also like to include the relationship to yourself of the person being remembered and would appreciate you including the necessary information.
Even if the form remains the same as last year it is still essential that it is returned to the Shul office, together with your donation.
If you did not have an entry in last year's Book of Remembrance and would like to include one this year, please download and complete the [Yizkor Form] and mail it to the Shul office.
Alternatively please contact the Shul office on 020 8954 2210 for a blank form if you have not already received one in the post.
So that we are able to print the Book of Remembrance in due time for Yom Kippur we ask that you return your form to the office by Sunday 30 June 2013 latest.
Please note that we do not require you to inform us which service you will attend on Yom Kippur, because all names of departed relatives will be recorded in the Book of Remembrance.
