It is a Jewish tradition to commemorate the passing of a relative or loved one with a Yahrzheit plaque. The Bess and Moe Greenberg Family Hillel Lodge has dedicated an area near the sanctuary to memorialize those who have departed. Nameplates or plaques are inscribed with the English and Hebrew names of the departed along with the date of death in both the Hebrew and standard calendar. Beside each plaque is a memorial light, which is lit annually on the Yahrzheit and Yizkor services. By placing the name of a loved one on a plaque, you are marking their passing and making a positive impact to benefit the residents of Hillel Lodge.
