“We Jews remember. We remember our history and honor our ancestors. We are called B’nai Yisrael, the descendants of those who came before us, whose stories make us who we are. In turn, we claim our place as the next link in the chain of Jewish history, turning the past into the present and then the future. Remembering strengthens us as individuals and sustains as a people.” - Rabbi Judy Shanks
Why Do We Have A Memorial Wall?
Our Jewish tradition calls upon us to remember our loved ones. The memorial wall at the back of the sanctuary is a special way to honor those who came before us in a meaningful and lasting manner.
How Does It Work?
You can purchase a plaque for the memorial wall for someone who has already passed away, or reserve a plaque in advance with a $500 contribution to Temple Isaiah for each person being remembered. You will then provide in writing how you want the name engraved, as well as the date of death (secular calendar). Our memorial plaque coordinator can either select placement for you, or schedule a time at your convenience to meet in the sanctuary and select placement together. Please allow a 2-3 week processing time. Once confirmed, your loved one’s name will appear in the front of the annual Yizkor book of remembrance, you will receive reminders for their annual Yahrtzeit (anniversary of their death), and their name will appear in the Shabbat announcements for their Yahrtzeit.
Temple Isaiah appreciates having your loved ones remembered in this meaningful manner.
