Yahrzeit is a Yiddish word meaning “a year’s time” and it is the remembrance of the anniversary of a loved one’s passing. 

Temple Beth Am could not think of a more appropriate way to honor our loved ones than to have them with us in the sanctuary as we pray, and as we celebrate life-cycle events. 

The engraving on the plaque will include the name of your loved one in English as well as Hebrew (if desired) and the dates of death based on both the Jewish and Gregorian (modern-day) calendars. Plaques will be ordered upon full payment. Placement in the sanctuary will occur when the plaque is received (6 to 10 weeks from order date).
