This booklet has been designed to support people experiencing grief during the High Holiday season: 
First, it is an explainer of High Holiday themes and prayers centered on grief and remembrance.
Second, it offers the core components of the Yizkor service of remembrance.

Whether you are reading this with the idea of bringing supplementary readings with you to synagogue, or to create your own at-home remembrance, you can download and print copies of the pages that follow for everyone at your gathering, or share a link for people to read the service on their phones or tablets in settings where devices are used on the holiday.
Yom Kippur includes a dedicated moment, called Yizkor, to collectively remember lives lost. We ask that our loved ones find mercy and peace in their eternal rest, and by doing this we keep their memories alive even as they no longer take breath. 

Traditionally, a memorial yahrzeit candle lasts for the full 24 hours of Yom Kippur, but you can use any long-burning candle. Stare into the flame and hold for a moment the memories of those who no longer walk among us. Whether the loss is recent and tender, or in our distant past; whether lost to illness or injustice; whether dear to us or unknown or martyrs to a cause.

This booklet has been created by Shomer Collective, in collaboration with Recustom. Both are grateful to the many organizations and individuals named in this booklet who shared their creativity and their writings with the Recustom community.
