For many people, Yizkor, is the number one reason why they attend synagogue on Yom Kippur. The word yizkor literally means to remember, and Yizkor is a time-honored way for people to remember close family members who have passed away. Yizkor, however, is about far more than just memory. Yizkor is a gateway into some of the deepest Jewish insights into the soul, the nature of the afterlife, and the relationship between our reality in this world, and the world beyond.
