Book of Remembrance 2018 / 5779
Honoring the memory of our friends and relatives has become an annual tradition in the publication of the Beth El Book of Remembrance.
The 5779 Book of Remembrance will be distributed at Yom Kippur. 
This year we will expand our new section in the Book of Remembrance – Kavanot/Reflections – to any members of our Congregation who have lost a loved one and wish to honor their memory. Families are invited to submit a picture and a short write-up about their family member reflecting on their life. The cost for each ¼ page dedication is $250. Please submit your text and photo by July 27, 2018.
To submit your text and photo or for further information, please contact Sarah Rohan at or 410-484-0411.
