Yiskor Booklet for 2016/2017 (5777)
We are compiling the Yizkor Memorial Booklet so we need to hear from you immediately. The listings in last year’s booklet will remain. If you have names to add, please send the names, dates of passing and their relationship to you to bethshalomauburn@gmail.com (to Paula Hunker's attention).

A donation of $18 per name is encouraged or consider purchasing a leaf in loving memory (details later in the newsletter). We expect to hold the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur, October 12, at ~ 5:30 p.m.  The rabbi will read the names in the booklet.
