For the past several years, Fabrangen has created  a Yizkor Memorial Booklet to supplement our Yizkor service on Yom Kippur.

The deadline for this year’s booklet is 12:00 pm (noon) on Thursday, October 6th.

As this booklet is a small, annual publication, its focus is on honoring those who have passed away in the past year only.

If you have any questions, please contact yizkor@fabrangen.org.

Please fill out this form for submission in this year’s Booklet.

“The first time I attended Fabrangen was for Yom Kippur services in 1999. When it came time for Yizkor, I was dreading it.  My father had died suddenly almost exactly 10 years earlier, and I was already emotional, feeling his loss deeply, when it came time to remember dear ones by selecting a rock and placing it in another location. Following others to the baskets filled with small rocks, I somehow began to feel I wasn’t alone as I carefully selected one and completed the ritual.  It turned out to be one of the most personally moving and meaningful service experiences I had ever had.  Walking home from 13th and New York to Cleveland Park, I realized I had discovered a special community that I wanted to be part of in the days and years to come.” – Susan B.
