There is a tradition at the High Holy Days, and in particular on Yom Kippur, to take time to remember those who are no longer with us but whose memory continues to shape the people we are today.
We will continue the format we have used the last few years for listing names. There will be a section for all those who have perpetual yahrzeits. There will be a section remembering those who passed away during the past year. Families again will be given the opportunity to share the names of those who they wish to remember. We will print the books for pick-up or delivery, and will also publish the book on our Temple website.
If you wish to make a donation to support the Book of Memory or to any of the Temple Funds, it is appropriate to do so.
To ensure that it is ready for distribution before Rosh Hashanah, we are requesting submissions for the 2020 Book of Memory by Monday, August 24, 2020.
If you have any questions, please contact Lori at the Temple Israel office at (330) 455-5197.
Please see the 2019 Book of Memory below for reference as you prepare this year’s submissions.
