Memorial Plaques – Estabnlish a Permanent Memorial Plaque

Note - Order by July 12 for plaque to be in place by Yom Kippur.

On the anniversary of the Hebrew date of death of a parent, child, sibling or spouse, that person’s 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.
