Congregants who provide Temple Beth-El with the names and dates of their loved one’s passing will receive a letter three weeks prior to the observance of the yahrzeit.

As the yahrzeit approaches we encourage families to donate to the synagogue in their memory.

Each day at minyan, the names of those whose yahrzeits are observed on that day are read. In addition, all names for the entire week are read during both Friday evening and Saturday morning Shabbat services.

Congregants who attend minyan on Monday or Thursday morning, or Saturday afternoon can receive an aliyah and have the prayer known as El Malei Rahameem, God Full of Compassion recited on behalf of their loved one.

If you have not received a notice and would like one, please contact the Temple Beth-El office.

If you do not know the Hebrew date of your loved one’s passing and do not wish to receive notices from the Temple, you may easily find out the date at HebCal where there is a link for yahrzeits.
