Yizkor Book 5778 (2017-2018)

Our congregation prints a booklet with the Yizkor prayers and a list of individuals who we remember in a special way with those prayers. We use this booklet throughout the year, and we would like to include the names of the people that you wish to remember. The Yizkor prayers are printed in the book in Hebrew, English and Russian, enabling everyone to fully participate.

The cost is $25 to participate and that includes listing three names. Additional names can be listed for $5 each. Filling the form on line will allow you to pay by credit card, and will allow us to process your form and donation more quickly. However, if you prefer to pay by check, you may fill out the enclosed form and return it with a check to the KTM office by August 14. Please be sure to write “yizkor book” in the memo line, and to include your telephone number and an email address so that if necessary, we can check the spelling or answer any question me might have.

To participate in the Yizkor book please follow this link.

Rabbi Abraham Halbfinger Memorial Book

7 Tishrei marked the fourth yahrzeit of Rabbi Abraham Halbfinger zt"l. 

A book was published in his memory consisting of divrei torah from many of the now grown men and women who attended Kadimah-Toras Moshe in their youth, words of tribute from community leaders, and words of comfort from the Halbfinger family.

If you are interested in having a copy, please contact Rabbi Benjamin Houben (617) 903-3218 in the Boston area or Rabbi Jonathan Krimsky, if you are out of town.

There is a suggested donation of $18 for the volume.  All proceeds go to the Rabbi Abraham Halbfinger Memorial Fund (information about the fund is included in the book).
