SVIVAH Remembering Together with Yael Flusberg 9.16.20

Loss is deep these days — it’s good to be together.

For the past thousand years, Jews have included the powerful Yizkor memorial service as part of High Holiday prayers. This year, COVID-19 has changed so much – our ability to visit the sick or to gather to honor the lives of those we’ve loved and lost.

What is the meaning of Yizkor in these times? Jewish teachings hold that when Yizkor is recited, the veil between the living and the dead is lifted; our loved ones are close and listening.

Spend an evening with us as we widen the circle, remembering and engaging in what matters most, for both the living and the lost. We’ll use guided meditation, writing and discussion to deepen the possibilities that Yizkor holds. Expect an experiential-rich evening together, and know that you will not need to share, unless you choose to do so.

Yael is a true “soul-holder” – let’s be together with her and remember those people we hold close in our hearts.

Come share. Come listen. Come check in. We want to be with you.
