Yom Kippur Yizkor Book
The Yizkor Service on Yom Kippur is one very moving part of the day, and at PSJC we have a tradition of creating a Yizkor Book where people list the names, and if they like share the photos, of those they are remembering. The High Holy Days come quite early this year, so submitting names for the Yom Kippur Yizkor Book starts sooner than usual. The book will be available in hard copy and on our website.
If you previously listed names for yartzeits on ShulCloud (PSJC's database) you were sent an individual email with the names of loved ones you may choose to include in the Yizkor book. If you did not receive an individual email, please contact Yizkor@PSJC.org with the names (English, and Hebrew if known) that you would like included, their relationship to you (father, mother, etc.), Hebrew and/or Gregorian date of death, and any photos. It is traditional to make an $18 donation to PSJC in honor of each of the names listed; the PSJC office will bill your account for each name that you select. The deadline for inclusion in the Yizkor Book is August 27th, but we greatly appreciate receiving information before the deadline!
High Holy Days @ PSJC
We look forward to celebrating the High Holy Days as a community in the sanctuary, in the yard, and on Zoom!
Please follow our High Holy Day Page for details as they develop.
Rosh Hashanah begins on the evening of Labor Day, September 6th, and Yom Kippur begins with Kol Nidre, on the evening of September 15th.
We begin our formal introduction to the Yamim Noraim (Days of Awe) even earlier, with a community-wide Selichot service on the evening of Saturday, August 28, featuring Rabbis and Cantors from congregations across Brooklyn coming together to provide a moving and musical experience.
