YIZKOR DONATIONS

Yartzeit Commemoration Opportunities


It is the Jewish custom to remember family members and friends on the anniversary of their passing. Kaddish- a memorial prayer is recited, a yartzeit candle is lit, and tzedaka (charity) is given. Some families recite psalms or complete a tractate of Talmud or mishna in honor of a yartzeit.

Doing mitzvas and giving charity are powerful ways to memorialize the passing of loved ones, who influenced and inspired us during their lives. They continue to do so even after their passing. Additionally, our tradition teaches us that by taking meritorious actions in honor of the deceased and giving tzedaka in their merit, it is counted as if they themselves performed the mitzvos.

We offer various charity options with which you can commemorate the memory of a loved one. Please see Donation Box above.

When donating in honor of a Yartzeit, please record the person's name in English and the date of their passing in the comments box on the donation page.

Yizkor Donation Program


Yizkor is a memorial prayer recited four times a year: on Yom Kippur, Shmini Atzeret, the last days of Passover and Shavuot. It is a solemn and meaningful prayer commemorating the lives and the passing of a beloved member of the family. Our tradition teaches us that family members and loved ones who are no longer in this world still maintain a powerful spiritual connection to the living, and that reciting prayers and giving tzedaka on their behalf can bring them eternal benefit.

"Yizkor" means "remember". For us, remembering is not only a matter of thought, but also of deed; we take action to benefit others in the merit of our loved one. In fact, within the text of the Yizkor prayer we pledge to give charity in memory and in merit of the deceased. By donating to our Yizkor program you will bring great benefit to both the living and the departed.

We offer various options to commemorate a loved one. Please see Donation Box above.

When making a contribution in honor of Yizkor, please indicate the name of the person in English and the date of their passing in the comments box on the donation page.
