Memorial Plaques
Honor the memory of a loved one by dedicating a memorial plaque in his or her memory.  Once a plaque is ordered, Temple Israel will perpetually read the name of the deceased during Shabbat services on the anniversary of death. Family members will be notified of this date. All names on plaques are included in the Yom Kippur Book of Remembrance. A contribution of $650 to the Temple Israel Endowment Fund will secure a plaque. Please contact Sue Misselbeck for more information.
