Jewish tradition sees memory as a sacred act, allowing us to be inspired by the good in a loved one’s life and live more fully in our own days. A yahrzeit plaque allows for a permanent remembrance of a loved one, ensuring that his or her name will be recalled in perpetuity in our congregation.
Yahrzeit Plaques can be added to our Memorial Board by any Community Synagogue member at any time. Each plaque is inscribed with the English and Hebrew names of the departed along with the date of death in both the standard and Hebrew calendar. Each plaque has a memorial light, which is lit annually on the Yahrzeit and the four Yizkor services (Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Passover, Shavuot). Each year, the light by the plaque will be lit in remembrance on the Sahbbat closest to the yahrzeit.
