It is traditional to take a moment on Yom Kippur and remember, particularly those who are no longer with us. This is primarily done formally at a special Yizkor ('Remember') service which is often moving, especially when the loss is recent or still very painful.

In order to mark Yizkor more broadly, several community members, Nikki Levitan, Brianne Stolper and Katy Neale had the idea of creating a semi permanent Yizkor cave in the garden at the JVS, (where this year's services will be taking place.)

Sunday night saw the beginning of the transformation from garden shed to cave, with half a dozen of us bringing photos or mementoes of loved ones and messages or remembrance and love to decorate it with.
