JourneyCare’s patients and family members and the local community are invited to join the Jewish Care Services team at our annual Yizkor memorial service in October at our Glenview Atrium at 2050 Claire Court in Glenview.
JourneyCare’s Yizkor service is a rite of remembrance that allows families to honor their loved ones according to Jewish tradition during the special time between the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah (October 2-4), and Yom Kippur (October 11-12). During the Yizkor service, traditional prayers and music in Hebrew are shared, opportunities are provided for mourners to speak about their loved ones, and each family receives Yartzeit Candles to light on the anniversary of the death.
Families often express how meaningful this service is to them, especially to those who do not have a synagogue they attended regularly.
For more information, or to RSVP, contact Rhonda Wehner at 847-556-1656.
