Kever Avot Graveside Visit - Ahavai Shalom and Neveh Zedek Cemeteries

Sunday, October 2, Neveh Zedek: 9:30am | Ahavai Shalom: 10:30am

The Jewish embrace of life is intertwined with respect for those who came before. In between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, there is a beautiful custom for families to gather at our cemeteries to recite special readings and hear the memorial prayers graveside. Depending on weather and health concerns, we will gather outdoors or in the chapels.
