YAHRZEIT PLAQUES:Remember your departed loved ones throughout the year by putting their name on a yahrzeit plaque.  The plaques are located on the wall at the rear of the Temple sanctuary.  Every Memorial Plaque bears the name and yahrzeit date of the loved one.  The Memorial Light adjoining the plaque is illuminated on every Yahrzeit and Yizkor service of the year.  Those individuals who have a Memorial Plaque in their honor are also listed in the Yahrzeit section of our bulletin with an asterisk next to their name.  The cost is $250 per plaque (only one name per plaque).  If you are interested in a Memorial Plaque, please call Debbie Schue in the Temple office at 697-2662.
