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. This year, the event will be held virtually on Sunday, October 18, from 3 – 4:30 p.m. We invite you to join this year’s event from the comfort of your own home.
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, and Yom Kippur.
During the Yizkor service, traditional prayers and music in Hebrew are shared, your loved one’s name will be recited and you can have the opportunity to write a remembrance that will be read at that time. You may wish to light a Yartzeit Candle when your loved one’s name is read.
Families often express how meaningful this service is to them, especially to those who do not have a synagogue they attended regularly.
