      If you would like your loved ones to be memorialized in our Yizkor book, please complete and return this Yizkor Form.  This year the book will be sent by email to all who are registered.  We must receive your information no later than Wednesday, September 9, to include it in the book.


      We need volunteers who are proficient with hosting Zoom meetings to assist with check-in and other Zoom functions.  You can help by taking a shift or two.  Contact Frann at frannshore@gmail.com or Diane at dianetzilka@gmail.com.  Members and non-members are welcome to help out.


      Reconstructing Judaism has generously created a pdf version of our Kol Haneshamah High Holy Day prayer book so that everyone can access it from home in this unusual year.  Everyone who registers for our services will receive the pdf version a few days before Rosh Hashanah. If you would like to purchase the actual book, go to Recon Press.  Discounts are available to Leyv Ha-Ir members. More information about prayer books will be forthcoming to Leyv Ha-Ir members.
