Now available–a consolidated Bimah list.
We’ve added another button to the Yahrzeit query. Just a little background would be in order. On the Yahrzeit query, the top half of the screen shows all the Yahrzeits matching the Hebrew date range. Conversely, the bottom half of the screen shows all the Yahrzeits matching the Gregorian dates that you’ve entered.
If your congregation concentrates on one or the other — all Hebrew or all Gregorian — you can use the long-standing buttons to create a Hebrew or Gregorian Bimah list.
On the other hand, if your congregation has a mixture, the new Combination Bimah List button will serve you well.
With this button, the system combines the Hebrew lines with the Gregorian lines, to give you one list. Along the way, at your option, it sorts by the dates the Yahrzeits occur, according to the Yahrzeit observer.
If you haven’t used the Yahrzeit area before, you might find it helpful to have a look at this instructional article and video.
Or, if you’d like to see the new “Combo” Bimah list in action, here’s a link that will step through the process.
