Many Jews make a point of visiting loved ones’ graves during the month of Elul.
Visiting the graves of loved ones, during the High Holy Days, helps connect us to the holidays’ themes of renewal, repentance, reflection, and growth through memories of our loved ones.
During these times, our movements have been incredibly restricted. Because of this, Temple Beth Sholom would like to invite you to—safely and securely—step inside to visit our Memorial Wall. You may schedule a private visit, either Thursday, September 24th, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, or Saturday, September 26th, from noon to 3:00 pm. You may visit the Memorial Wall and leave stones, say a prayer, visit the Sanctuary or Chapel and take some time in the Meditation Garden.
We will follow strict protocols to meet safety guidelines. Also, we will provide stones and prayers and instructions for a safe and meaningful visit. Visits will be scheduled in 15-minute intervals and will be limited to allow as many families as possible to visit and for appropriate time to clean between visits.
