Please save the date for our annual Memorial Day Weekend observance for Jewish veterans. We will gather at the Mayfield Cemetery on Sunday, May 26 at 9:30am. We will begin with a brief memorial service, led by Rabbi Roger Klein and Rabbi Josh Caruso. Then volunteers from both congregations will be given lists of veterans’ names, maps to find the graves, and flags to mark them. If you know of a veteran who passed away since last Memorial Day and is buried at Mayfield Cemetery please send the name name(s) no later than Thursday, May 9 to Cyndi Wilson at Any names that we receive after May 9 will go on the list for 2025. There are almost 500 graves to mark, so we need lots of volunteers! This is a great mitzvah to do with young people, so don’t hesitate to bring your children or grandchildren. Please let Cyndi know if you can help with this meaningful remembrance of those who sacrificed for our country.
