Book of Remembrance

For the first time in many years, TBI will be producing our very own Book of Remembrance* to help us recall and honour loved ones during the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur.

Remembering is an important part of Jewish tradition. Torah teaches us that we should move l’dor dor, from generation to generation (Exodus 3:15). By honouring our loved ones, we create a lasting legacy of continuity.

In keeping with this tradition, it is customary to recall our loved ones’ names at times of mourning and keep them at the forefront of our hearts and minds. When we write down their names, their lives continue to have a significant place in our world, even though they are no longer physically with us.

In Judaism, our names are significant and there are entire sections of Torah that are comprised solely of names, relating each generation to the next. We encourage you to continue this tradition and fulfil the mitzvah of remembering by completing and returning the form, which you can download below, by 23 July 2018 to ensure your entry in the TBI Book of Remembrance.

This book will be distributed prior to the TBI Yizkor service on Yom Kippur, Wednesday 19 September 2018 and will be available from the TBI office in the days that follow, for you to keep as a perpetual memory.

Zichronam livrachah – May your loved ones’ memory be for a blessing.

* Previously our loved ones were remembered in the Progressive Judaism Victoria (PJV) Memorial Book. If you would like to have a listing in the PJV Memorial Book and website, please contact Progressive Judaism Victoria directly on 9533 9930 or email [email protected]
