Yarhzeit and Memorial Wall

Many people tell us that they want a loved one to be remembered in perpetuity. The next time you are in the synagogue, look at our Memorial Plaques, each with its own light, on the walls within the Sanctuary.

Each Plaque ensures that the name of your loved one will be read on his or her yahrzeit, that the light will be lit at Yizkor four times a year and that you will be mailed an annual notification prior to the appropriate date.

As a current member of the Shir Hadash community, you also have the option to purchase two or more Plaques at the same time, prior to death, so that family member names will be displayed next to each other, and because they do not want other family members to worry about ordering later.

For more information about Memorial Plaques please contact the synagogue office at 847-498-8218 or info@shir-hadash.org.

Yahrzeit Memorial Plaques

 

In the coming months, Shir Hadash will be installing a Memorial Wall with individual plaques recording the Hebrew and English name of the deceased and the date of birth and passing. The plaques will be located at the back of the sanctuary. Having a Memorial Plaque for a loved one ensures that Yahrzeit will be observed for them in perpetuity by our congregation.

On the Yahrzeit, or anniversary of the death, the lights next to the plaques of those whose death occurred on the same Hebrew date will be lit. All lights on the walls will be lit for the four annual Yizkor Services.


The cost for a plaque is $360.  Many congregants prepay and reserve plaques.  As always, Shir Hadash is extremely grateful for your contributions. What better way to both commemorate a loved one and support our congregation than to purchase a Yahrzeit Plaque on our Memorial Board?
