B'nai Zion will have Yizkor services on Yom Kippur, on Simchat Torah, at the end of Passover, and on Shavuot.
Please check the B'nai Zion Calendar or Events listing for details about attending or watching the service.

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.

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

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.)
