Yartzheit Plaques

It is a time-honored Jewish custom to preserve the memory of a loved one who has passed by having their name listed in the synagogue. Congregation B’nai Torah’s yartzheit wall enables you to honor those who were dear to you. This beautiful wall, reminiscent of the stones of Jerusalem, keeps the names of our dear ones near us in our sanctuary.

You may dedicate a plaque, with the English and Hebrew names of any of your loved ones, and the date of their passing. Your loved ones’ plaques will be illuminated, preserving their memory in light, on the dates when they are commemorated in synagogue the week of the yartzheit (the anniversary of the death on the Hebrew calendar), and Yizkor days (the dates of Yom Kippur, Shemini Atzeret, Passover, and Shavuot).
 
The cost to dedicate a yartzheit plaque for an individual is $500. To dedicate your plaque, please complete this form
 
More about Yartzheit 
It is an ancient practice to remember our loved ones who have passed on the anniversary of their passing. In the Jewish tradition, this date is observed according to the Jewish calendar, so the English date may vary slightly from year to year.
 
The yartzheit  is observed beginning at sundown, with lighting a yartzheit candle, and the recitation of the mourner’s Kaddishwith a minyan at one or more of the three daily services. Those who are unable to attend a daily service may come to a service on the nearest Sabbath. Congregation B’nai Torah will send a reminder letter a few weeks before the yahrzeit of each of their loved ones. The yartzheit  is often a time to give tzedakah in memory of the deceased, perpetuating causes and values that were meaningful to them.
