Kever Avos at Evergreen: Chofetz Chayim Section

The word Kever means burial place and the word Avos means fathers.
Visiting Kever Avos (The graves of our loved ones) is a centuries-old tradition that is observed prior to Rosh Hashanah.
Ever since the founding of our Chofetz Chayim Cemetery at Evergreen in 1995, we have gathered together there on the last Sunday before Rosh Hashana in observance of this meaningful tradition. Several Psalms as well as a special memorial prayer are recited at each grave.
