Electronic Yahrzeit Memorial Board
Memorialize your loved ones for future generations with a memorial
screen on our Interactive Yahrzeit Board located just outside the Rabbi Louis Berkal Chapel.
The names listed are those from the existing Yahrzeit plaques in the
Rabbi Berkal Chapel. This user-friendly board displays the names of
Yahrzeits which fall within each week. By touching the screen, you can
access the features of the board, including searching for names and
viewing their photos and biographies. During yontiff, the board will be
disabled out of respect for the holiday. On Yizkor dates (Yom Kippur,
Sh'mini Atzeret, the 8th day of Pesach and the 2nd day of Shavuot) names
will scroll on the board alongside a symbolic candle. During that time,
the Yahrzeit Plaque lights will be off and memorial candles will be lit
in the Chapel and in the Sanctuary. If you would like more information,

Dedicate a park bench in the name of your loved one, offering comfort,
opportunities for contemplation, and further enhancement of the cemetery. These benches have a concrete base and wooden seats and
backs. If you are interested in contributing to this project by
purchasing a bench in memory of a loved one, you may do so by calling
the number below. All benches will be identified with a permanent plaque.
Yizkor Book has become a tradition of
Congregation Shaarey Zedek. This unique and meaningful book offers a
distinctive, personal way for you to memorialize the lives of your loved
ones, and is filled with readings and reflections on life and
remembrance. It now includes a special Holocaust Memorial section with
names of those who perished. This book is offered to the Congregation at
the Yom Kippur Service by the participants and sponsors of the book. For
more information, call the number below.
prior to the Yahrzeit date, reminder notifications
are mailed out to members who have requested this service.
