The Or Chadash Yahrtzeit Board

It is a Jewish commandment (mitvah) to remember the dead, and in particular to remember close relatives.  Traditional ways to remember the dead include saying Kaddish, lighting Yahrtzeit candles, and placing their names on a synagogue’s Yahrtzeit Board.

All plaques will include the remembered person’s English name and date of death according to the secular calendar.  People purchasing the plaque also have the option of adding the remembered person’s Hebrew name and date of death according to the Hebrew calendar.  We will have magnets that attach to the plaques to mark names of the anniversary of their death.

The cost of each plaque is $180.
