Go to Current Year Yizkor List and Obituaries

B'nai Zion will have Yizkor services on Yom Kippur, at the end of Sukkot, at the end of Passover, and on Shavuot.

There is a Jewish tradition to light a Memorial candle (also called a Yahrzeit or Yizkor candle) at your home on the Yahrzeit (anniversary of the death) of your loved one and also on the evening of the four Holy Days when we observe Yizkor. When you light a Yizkor candle, remember to light it before the Yom Tov candles. Some people choose to light battery-operated or electric Yizkor/Yahrzeit candles. The B'nai Zion Sisterhood Gift Shop usually has a variety of candles in stock. They can also often be found in supermarkets where kosher foods are found.

Please check the B'nai Zion Calendar or Events listing for details about attending or watching the service.

All Memorial Plaques at B'nai Zion are lit for all Yizkor services and the Yahrzeit week / the anniversary of the death.

CLICK HERE to go to the Memorial Plaque Order Form. 

The B'nai Zion Memorial Book will be used for each of the Yizkor services, beginning with Yom Kippur.

All Yizkor names of people who were connected to B'nai Zion who died since last Rosh HaShanah are included in the Memorial Book. (Please check the Yizkor list below to see if we included everyone.)

CLICK HERE to go to the Memorial Book Page.

We are in the process of adding more Yizkor lists to this page below, and intend to include all appropriate obituaries. Thank you for your patience - and your help in identifying any names or obituaries we are missing.
