Yahrzeit Plaques are a Permanent Memorial to a Loved One

“In the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember them... When we have joys we yearn to share, we remember them... So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.”                                                                                           (From Yom Kippur Memorial Service liturgy)

In keeping with Jewish tradition, we observe the anniversary of a loved one's death. While they live on in our memories, we can also honor them with a tangible memorial. A memorial plaque shows the prominent place our dear departed loved ones occupy in our place of worship and in our hearts. 

Each plaque may be engraved with the name of the deceased and date of passing. There will be a light next to each plaque that will be lit during the week of he yahrzeit, on the High Holy Days and for all occasions when Yizkor is recited. You will also receive an annual reminder ahead of the yahrzeit. 

The contribution for a yahrzeit plaque is $750 and may be engraved in English and/or Hebrew. You may also reserve a space close to another plaque. To purchase a memorial plaque or reserve a space, please fill out the form below. For assistance with Hebrew wording, please contact the Temple Shalom office at (239) 455 - 3030.
