Bereavement

Congregation Beth El provides strong support at a time of bereavement. Rabbi Shulman and Rabbi Libman are available to officiate at Funeral Services and Unveilings for synagogue members and their families, to provide guidance regarding funeral arrangements and mourning traditions, and to offer personal assistance during a time of loss.
 
Our synagogue family compassionately embraces our bereaved families supporting Shiva observances, providing meals, and being present to the needs of our friends and neighbors experiencing grief. Jewish tradition teaches us to act out of respect for those who have died and with caring and comfort toward those who are bereaved.
 
For more information, please contact the Rabbinic Office.

Yizkor memorial prayers

When a loved one dies it is our family, friends, and community who help sustain our lives and cherish our memories. Memory is never about death. Memory is about life and personal renewal. This is why four times each year, on Yom Kippur and on the festivals of Sukkot, Passover, and Shavuot, we gather as a synagogue community to recite Yizkor Memorial Prayers. Connecting our personal memories to the on-going story of the Jewish people, we comfort one another and reclaim for our lives the lessons of those whom me miss.
