Memorial Plaques

Many people choose to honor their departed loved ones by installing a permanent marker in our Memorial Room. Each plaque is 2ā€ tall by 6.5ā€ wide and will accommodate two lines of text.  We can inscribe the full English name of the loved one and the English date of birth and death.

While remembering a departed loved one brings to mind poignant memories and recollections of good times shared, dealing with a loss is often a difficult and lengthy process. At B'nai Israel, honoring anniversaries of these passings is some of the most important work we do.

In Jewish tradition, there are several occasions each year when our loved ones who have passed on are memorialized. The most significant of these is yahrzeit, the anniversary of the death. As is the case in all Jewish holy days, yahrzeit observance begins at night. A 24-hour candle is lit and one may attend synagogue to recite the Kaddish [the memorial prayer]. Yahrzeit candles can be purchased in our Jonas Goldman Gift Shop or at most large supermarkets.
