Shabbat Shuva Service in the Bertha Abess Sanctuary followed by an Oneg Shabbat

It is a Jewish custom to remember our deceased family members and friends during the High Holy Days and to visit their gravesites, if possible. Many of our Temple members have relatives and friends buried in the Greater Miami area, and some observe the tradition of visiting them on the Sunday between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This year, we will be joining many other members of the Greater Miami Jewish community for Kever Avot services to honor the departed at our local cemeteries on Sunday, Sept 16. If you have a loved one buried in Miami, there is a good chance there will be a group of mourners there to honor their loved ones as well. It would be a mitzvah to join them.
