Book of Remembrance

We are making a change to the Book of Remembrance this year. Instead of asking for submissions specifically for the Book of Remembrance, all members' yahrzeits will be included in the printed book, which will be distributed on Yom Kippur. Rather than requiring a payment ahead of time, we are requesting that you make a donation to the synagogue in memory of your loved one(s). The suggested amount is $5.00 per name.
