Shavuot - May 28/6 Sivan




Tikkun Leil Shavuot and Yizkor

May 28th starting at 6:15pm


Yizkor, the memorial service, is recited four times a year, on Yom Kippur and each of the three pilgrimage holidays- Passover, Sukkot (though we really recite it on Shmini Atzeret), and Shavuot. It is a service that makes space in our most joyous moments for our remembrance and sadness that there are those with whom we can no longer celebrate these holidays and traditions.

This Shavuot we will be unable to physically gather as a community for this solemn and powerful service of remembrance. Yet our tradition, and our recent history, give us a model by which we can still be together and recite Yizkor.

On Thursday, May 28th, following the Tikkun Leil Shavuot, the congregational study program, we will remain gathered together for Yizkor at 7:45pm. The link for Yizkor is the same link that we will be using for the Tikkun, so you will already be in the Yizkor meeting room. You can also join for Yizkor by clicking here and the text can be found here. The service will end right before Shavuot begins, giving us a beautiful opportunity to light our Yizkor candles together, so if possible please bring your candle with you, in doing so the memories of our loved ones will burn brightly.
