It is a special mitzvah to remember our loved ones who have departed. There are a number of ways to honor those who have passed away.
Loved ones' names can be read annually at Shabbat services. Contributions are not required but are appreciated.
A Perpetual Yahrzeit can be purchased for $625. This includes:
- A permanent plaque on the wall outside the main sanctuary that is highlighted during the week of the Yahrzeit.
- Annual notice of the Yahrzeit date.
- Reading of your loved one's name at Shabbat services annually the week of the Yahrzeit.
- Your loved one's name will appear in the Bulletin the month of the Yahrzeit each year.
The names of loved ones can be listed in the Book of Memory which is distributed at Yizkor services throughout the year. You will receive a letter prior to the High Holy Days inviting you to preserve your loved one's memory this way.
