“It is important to have an opportunity to remember and honor our loved ones who are no longer with us, and to celebrate friends and relatives special occasions. Because it supports Temple Israel our tribute gifts are that much more significant to us.”

Yahrzeit and Memorial Plaques
honoring your loved ones
A way to remember a loved one is to dedicate a memorial plaque in his or her memory.
The Alice G. Winn Memorial Menorah is located along the rear wall of the Sanctuary. Those memorial plaques are made from glass and are hung once a year during the summer.
The Harry N. and Estelle S. Gorin Memorial Alcove surrounds one of the entrance doors to the Sanctuary. Those plaques are made from bronze and can be ordered and hung all year round.
Once a plaque is ordered, Temple Israel will perpetually read the name of the deceased during Shabbat services on Friday evening and Saturday morning of the anniversary of death. Family members will receive notification of this date in advance of the yahrzeit. All names on plaques are included in the annual Yom Kippur Book of Remembrance distributed to the Congregation on Yom Kippur.
A contribution of $650 to the Temple Israel Endowment Fund will secure a plaque in either the Alcove or on the Menorah. For further information, please call Sue Misselbeck at the Temple 617-566-3960 x 117 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
