Ceremony opening, Chaim Chesler and Roman Kogan


Rabbi Michael Frumin of Saratov Yizkor (“remembrance”) prayers are recited by those that have lost either one or both of their parents; in some modern moderate Jewish congregations, one might say yizkor for any relative or close friend whose death is mourned. There is a custom that those who do not recite the Yizkor prayers leave the synagogue until the completion of Yizkor; the symbolic reason for this is to respect the life of one’s living parents.
