Remembering our loved Ones . . . and those we did not know
Judaism recognizes the value of remembering—recalling what was but is now no longer. We are invited to remember—experiences, events, people—at many times throughout the year. We recall the experience of having been in Mitzrayim—constricted places–daily, weekly, and on holidays such as Pesach. And we recall those we have known and loved—every year on the anniversary of their death, as well as four times a year during the special service known as Yizkor.
Yizkor is traditionally done on the 8th day of Pesach, which this year falls on Thursday, April 16. During our Morning Minyan, we will spend time together remembering those who were once a part of our lives, as well as those who—over these past few months—have lost their lives to the Covid-19 virus.
Our Minyan will go from 9:15 – 10:00 a.m. All are invited to participate via Zoom, https://zoom.us/j/840180982
