COH Annual Cemetery Visitation at Arlington Memorial Park
10:00 am Sunday, September 27, 2020 | Registration is required
For many people, visiting the graves of loved ones prior to the High Holidays is a Jewish custom that helps connect us to the spiritual themes of renewal, repentance, reflection, and growth through memories of our loved ones. Rabbi Lauren will lead the service. There are a limited number of slots for people to attend, so you must register in advance, and everyone must wear a mask and maintain social distancing. If anyone would like directions to the Or Hadash section of the cemetery, please meet Ronnie Genser in the parking lot in front of the cemetery office no later than 9:50 am so you can follow her in your own car to where this service will be held. All registrants are welcome to be part of this brief, but very meaningful service, even if your loved ones are not buried at Arlington Memorial Park.
