In My Heart isn’t only about news obituaries of famous and significant Jewish figures and important Jewish personalities from the past. In fact, it is primarily about the people you know and love – your parents, family members, friends and professional colleagues who have influenced you and the world.

We encourage contributions from you. We will publish and keep online in perpetuity these tributes, eulogies, reminiscences, and appreciations of those people who have made a significant contribution to us and to the world.

Send your contributions to us, and we will post them all and give them prominent play on In My Heart.
