Yizkor & N'ilah
September 26 at 3:45pm in the Temple
Yizkor, which means "remembrance" in Hebrew, is a memorial
service. It is a custom at Temple Sinai to honor the memory of family members
or other departed loved ones by attending this service.
We also compile a "Book of Remembrance" that lists the names
of those we are remembering. This book is distributed just before the Yizkor
afternoon service on Yom Kippur. To have a name or names listed in the Book of
Remembrance, click here. In order for us
to complete our Book of Remembrance on time, we ask that you please submit this
form so that it is received in our office by September 14, 2012.
Follows the Yizkor service and takes place in the Temple Sinai Sanctuary
N'ilah, which means "closing", is the concluding service of Yom
Kippur. The ark holding the Torah is kept open throughout this service, and it
is symbollically our last chance to atone before “God seals our judgment in the
book.” The service is sometimes referred to as the closing of the gates. The
N'ilah service ends with a long blast of the Shofar.
Break the Fast
Follows the N'ilah service in Stern Hall.
No tickets are required for the
Yizkor Service, the N'ilah Service or the Break the Fast.
