Memorial Plaque Donations

On the anniversary of the Hebrew date of death of a parent, child, sibling or spouse, a yahrzeit is observed by lighting a 24-hour candle in the home the evening before the yahrzeit, by contributing to a worthy charity or cause, and by attending Synagogue to worship and recite the mourner’s Kaddish.  At TI, we recite the names of the deceased just before reciting the Kaddish on the Friday evening and Shabbat morning prior to a person’s yahrzeit date.  Memorial plaques are lit on the Shabbat before a yahrzeit and whenever there is a yizkor service.

If you would like to establish a permanent memorial plaque at Tifereth Israel for a deceased loved one, please complete the form below. If you would like to order more than one plaque, please fill this form out for each one.

To ensure plaques are ready for High Holidays this year, please order by Friday, June 30th.
