Shavuot, a time for celebration and remembrance

Shavuot, a time for celebration and remembrance

THE confluence this year of Shavuot and Memorial Day on Monday, May 28, will result in 10 regional synagogues reading — with an indispensable assist from the Intermountan Jewish News — the names of deceased Colorado veterans during their respective Shavuot services.

Organized by the Rocky Mountain Rabbinical Council, the commemoration will honor those Colorado Jews who have served in the US Armed Forces from WW I to the present day, including those killed in action and those who served in times of war and peace.

Each synagogue will offer a special prayer and read a portion of the veterans’ names from an extensive list that has been maintained and updated by the IJN for decades, and which the newspaper publishes annually on Memorial Day, including in this week's IJN Home Issue.
