Yizkor Video

At Temple, we have a long tradition of honouring the memories of our loved ones on Yom Kippur with the printed Roll of Remembrance. This year, we are continuing this tradition in a new way, by creating a video which will be incorporated into the Yizkor service online. As with our print Roll of Remembrance, you may submit names that will appear as text in the video. This will be in keeping with the solemnity of the day. We are providing an additional opportunity for remembrance to those who have lost loved ones in the last year. We invite you to submit a photo of your loved one, along with their name, the years of their birth & death, and one line, up to 10 words, describing who they were. As in the past, we ask for a donation of $18 for each name that you share.

If you have names/photos to submit for this year’s Yizkor Video, please click on the blue button below. Names submitted after August 21st may not be included in the video.
