Q.  What do you do with old Prayer Books??

A.  Create a special ceremony to bury sacred books and  other ritual items that are damaged or no longer in use.

Join us on this Sunday, October 23rd  at 12:30 at the Monroe Cemetery (472 Moose Hill Road) as we bury the old Gates Of Repentance and other sacred books and items.

Student intern Stephanie Crawley has created a special “genizah” burial service for us.  All are welcome to engage in this unique and meaningful ritual and to bring siddurim (prayer books) and other items that they may wish to inter.
