The High Holidays are coming (Rosh Hashanah is on September 24-25 and Yom Kippur is on October 3-4). I hope that you’ll consider remembering your deceased family members by including their names and photos in our streaming memorial service.
Memory is a central part of the High Holidays. In particular, Yom Kippur afternoon (when there is traditionally a service called yizkor) provides an important time to remember those who are no longer living. Recognizing that many people have loved ones they would like to honor, we provide the opportunity for you to share their names and photos. We include them in a slideshow that is part of a memorial service read by me and Rabbi Barr.
The service will go live at 4 PM on Saturday, October 4 and will also be archived for later viewing any time.
If there is someone special you would like to remember this Yom Kippur by including their photograph in our online memorial service, please submit a photo by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by mail (10001 Loveland-Madeira Rd., Loveland, OH 45140). Photos need to be received by September 26 at noon, Eastern Time.
Please send only one photo for each person you are remembering, and please include his or her name so that we can provide a text caption. All photos that are mailed to us will be returned if you include your return address.
If you submitted a photo last year, we will not automatically include it this year. However, if you would like us to use the same photo, simply send an email to email@example.com indicating that.
During the holidays, you will be able to view the service along with all of our streaming High Holiday service webcasts by clicking here.
If you have any questions about the online memorial service, please let me know. We hope you’ll join us by honoring family members on Yom Kippur afternoon. May their memories be for a blessing.
