Memorial Plaques and Weekly Kaddish List

Bronze plaques to honor a deceased loved one are available for purchase. The plaques are printed with the name and date of death and hung in the memorial chapel of the synagogue. Your loved one’s name will be published in the Temple bulletin prior to their yahrzeit and read each year at Shabbat services following the secular date of death. In addition, you and other family and friends whom you list will receive an email reminder of the yahrzeit each year. Plaques cost $500. $90.00 covers the cost of the plaque. The remainder is your generous donation in memory of your loved one. Purchase a plaque now.

Even if you do not purchase a memorial plaque, you may add the names of loved ones to our weekly Kaddish list using our website. Once you have an account setup on our website, visit the Yahrzeits area of your account to enter the name of the deceased and mourners to notify. If you are a Temple member and need help with your account, please contact the Temple office at 303-388-4013.
