Flower and Food Basket Fund
Every year for the High Holidays, we ask if congregants would like to contribute to the Flower & Food Basket
Fund. On Rosh Hashanah, we display food baskets from the Jewish Family and Career Services (JF&CS), the
proceeds of which are used to help the needy. On Yom Kippur we enhance the beauty of our pulpit with
flowers and greenery.
Many people donate in honor or memory of someone special in their lives by contributing Chai ($18.00) or multiples of Chai.
All contributions to this fund that are received by September 1, 2023 will be listed in the High Holy Day programs. Please use
the Flower or Food Basket Form to order.
Yizkor Book and Yizkor Plaque
A Memorial Booklet is prepared for the Yizkor Service on Yom Kippur. If you would like to include the names of
loved ones who have passed away, please complete the Yizkor Book Form and return it to the Kehillah office
no later than September 1, 2023. Any forms received after this date will be listed as a donation in the next issue
of the Kol Kehillah newsletter.
It is a meaningful custom to make a donation in memory of a loved one to continue their legacy in the amount of Chai ($18.00)
or multiples of Chai (Chai means “Life” in Hebrew). If you would like to dedicate a Yizkor plaque to be displayed in our lobby, please
use the Yizkor Book Form.
