Yizkor, a special memorial prayer for the departed, is recited in the synagogue four times a year; Yom Kippur, Shemini Atzeret, Shavuot and Passover.
The Yizkor is more than a service of remembrance, but rather it is a time for the relatives of the departed to connect with the souls of their loved ones on a deeper level.
Tradition has it that during the Yizkor service, the souls of the departed descend from heaven and are joined with those who are close to them.
If you would like Yizkor to be recited for your dearly departed and want to be added to the DJCC Yizkor list please fill out the form below.
