Each August we publish a Book of Remembrance (**We are now taking names for 2017) to use at Yizkor services. In addition to the names of loved ones remembered by friends and relatives, the book contains prayers and meditations, including a prayer for visiting graves and one for a family yahrzeit ceremony. These names will be read aloud at the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur.  If you wish to have names included in the book, we ask for a donation of $7 per name.  You do not have to be a BAJC member to have names listed, and neither you nor the people being remembered have to be Jewish.


If you have any questions, please contact Faith.  The book will be distributed annually at the Yom Kippur Yizkor service but if you prefer it be mailed to you or to someone else after the holiday, please add $1 to your check along with the address where you would like the book sent.  If you need to be reminded about the names you had in the book last year, Faith can get that information to you.
