Book Of Life

It is the custom of Ashkenazic Jews to recite the memorial prayer of Yizkor after the Torah reading on Yom Kippur, on the last day of Pesach and Shavuot, and on Shemini Atzeret (immediately following Sukkot). In this prayer we ask God to remember the souls of our departed parents and/or other loved ones, to grant them a beautiful eternal rest and to bring them ever closer to Him in His most exalted place. As part of the Yizkor prayer, we pledge to give charity in honor of the deceased. This is an important step that brings additional merit to the soul of the departed.

Diskin’s staff invest themselves heart and soul throughout the year to give orphans and needy children life-giving, nurturing love, care and support. When a family needs someone to recite the Yizkor prayer on behalf of relatives who have left this world, it is certainly most appropriate to have those dedicated people who staff Diskin perform these tasks. They are totally devoted to supporting and building new lives for orphans who have no one else to turn to. This special prayer will be rendered even more powerful through the strength of their merits.


May God remember the soul of (*), (……, daughter of ……), who has passed on to her [celestial] world; for I pledge – without obligating myself with a vow – to give charity to Diskin for her sake. In this merit, may her soul be bound up in the bond of life, together with the souls of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, and with the other righteous men and women who are in the Garden of Eden. Let us say: Amen.

יִזְכּוֹר אֱלֹהִים נִשְׁמַת (*) (פב"פ) שֶׁהָלְכָה לְעוֹלָמָהּ בַּעֲבוּר שֶׁבְּלִי נֶדֶר אֶתֵּן צְדָקָה לְמַעַן בֵּית דִּיסְקִין בַּעֲדָהּ, בִּשְׂכַר זֶה תְּהֵא נַפְשָׁהּ צְרוּרָה בִּצְרוֹר הַחַיִּים עִם נִשְׁמוֹת אַבְרָהָם יִצְחָק וְיַעֲקֹב שָׂרָה רִבְקָה רָחֵל וְלֵאָה וְעִם שְׁאָר צַדִּיקִים וְצִדְקָנִיּוֹת שֶׁבְּגַן עֵדֶן. וְנֹאמַר אָמֵן:

(*) אִמִּי מוֹרָתִי / סָבָתִי / דוֹדָתִי / אֲחוֹתִי / בִּתִּי / אִשְׁתִּי
