Individually and collectively, Jews honor and remember those we have loved and lost. Temple maintains Riverview Cemetery as a permanent resting place for members and their families, and our services always include memorial prayers for those who have died recently or at the season in years past. We invite you to add the names of your loved ones to those we cherish as a congregation. We hope that hearing them and sharing them will sustain their memory and provide comfort to those who mourn them.
Three times a year, we hold memorial services: Yom Kippur afternoon, the mornings of Simchat Torah and Shavuot, and the last day of Pesach, and on the Sunday afternoon prior to Yom Kippur, we hold a service at Riverview Cemetery.
You may memorialize anyone you remember by installing a yahrzeit (memorial) plaque on the wall of our sanctuary. In return for your contribution, Temple installs the plaque and adds your loved one's name to our memorial lists perpetually. Contact the Temple office for more information. You may also make a gift in anyone's memory to any fund or endowment at Temple Israel.
