  • Yizkor - Book of Remembrance

    Ensure that your loved ones are remembered!
  • Dear Friends,

    During the holiday of Shavuos, we would normally gather in Shul to recite the Yizkor prayers. Though this year, we may not be gathered together in Shul as usual. We can still take a moment while at home - to reflect, remember, and connect with our loved ones. And we ask G‑d, too, to remember the souls of family and friends who have passed away.

    But we cannot suffice with memory alone, because memory, by definition, relegates the remembered entity to the past. And we must endeavor to keep our loved ones’ legacies alive and present. They must be our inspiration, ever-present in our day-to-day life. As such, we continue to live in the company of their spirits, and they, in the World of Truth, live with us.

    We remember. We are inspired. And we pledge to do good in the merit of their souls. For this reason, the Yizkor service includes a pledge to tzedakah, charity, on behalf of the deceased’s souls.

    With this in mind, we will be creating a Yizkor booklet as part of our Shavuos at home guide. We ask you to include the names  of your loved ones. It is customary to fulfill the mitzvah of remembering your loved ones and giving tzedakah in their merit.  Your charity will go toward sustaining and growing the local Jewish community of Islip Township, during this very difficult time.

    Rabbi Stillerman will mention the names in the Shavuos guide and Yizkor booklet, as a part of the Keil Malei prayer recited on Shavuos.
