Ways to Remember

At Temple Emanu-El, there are many ways to  honor, celebrate, and remember dear friends, family, and past loved ones.

Perpetual Yahrzeit with Memorial/Yahrzeit Wall
It is a widely observed Jewish tradition to commemorate the passing of a loved one by remembering them on a dedicated Memorial Wall. The Temple Emanu-El Memorial Wall contains a plaque with the name and date of passing. Additionally, and in keeping with the ancient Jewish custom of honoring  departed ones with a stone on a marker, each plaque also has a carrier where you can place a tumbled stone on anniversary dates, or anytime at all! Your loved one’s name is read at time of yahrzeit in perpetuity. Memorial plaques ask for a donation of $750.

This is a tax-deductible donation.

Tree of Life
Located in our lobby, the Temple’s welcoming Tree of Life gives all who wish an opportunity to celebrate life’s joyful blessings in perpetuity by inscribing them on one of its beautiful leaves or rocks. Celebrate your simcha - weddings, births, B’nei Mitzvah, anniversaries, graduations, milestones. Honor someone you love - children, parents, family, friends, teacher. Tree of Life leaves and rocks ask for a donation of: $500 - $10,000.

Temple Emanu-El also offers several opportunities to remember your loved ones with the dedication of a book to the Temple library or prayer book used at our weekly Shabbat service, a High Holyday machzor or Torah commentary. All books contain a tribute bookplate honoring and celebrating your loved one’s name. Bookplates ask for a donation of: $36 - $100.
