booksSupport Youth through More Than Words
More Than Words helps employ and empower youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school. Support their work by bringing in paperback or hardcover books, fiction, non-fiction and current text books, audio books, music CDs, DVDs, BlueRay discs, and video games. The MTW Drive Box will be located in the Library. If you have questions, please contact Religious School parent Jeanie Gorlovsky-Schepp.
Honoring Your Loved Ones
Honor the memory of a loved one by dedicating a memorial plaque in his or her memory. The Alice G. Winn Memorial Menorah is located along the rear wall of the Sanctuary, and these memorial plaques are made from glass and 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, and these plaques are made from bronze and can be hung all year round. 

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.
