    As an American in synagouge in the US we always walked out during Yizkor, as if it was an unbreachable commandment. This past Shavuot we found ourselves in an Anglo synagouge in Jerusalem and as Yizkor approached the gabbai of the shul announced that the entire shul should stay in for the communal Yizkor, and those who chose may walk out after that. So, for the first time in my 53 years of shul going I was in for Yizkor services. To me it was moving to say Yizkor for the fallen Israeli soldiers followed by Yizkor for the victims of the Shoah. As a child of survivors it was so meaningful and emotional. I then took the accostomed walk out of shul as the rest of the congregation continued with their personal Yizkor. A friend of my parents came over and whispered in my ear, "may your parents be well and continue to make the walk out of Yizkor for many more years"
