Memorial Plaques

At NSCI, we permanently honor departed loved ones on our memorial walls in Frank Memorial Hall, where names are inscribed on enduring metal plaques. The plaques are highlighted every year on the yahrzeit (anniversary of their death), with a brass frame and their name will be read during Shabbat services and printed in the yahrzeit list on each anniversary.

Book of Remembrance 2020/5781

The Book of Remembrance is a cherished tradition at NSCI during the High Holy Days.  It is the service book that guides the Yom Kippur Yizkor memorial service. Its prayers and meaningful readings offer comfort and consolation during Yizkor and throughout the year as the names of departed loved ones are written on its pages.

It is a tradition in Judaism to honor the memory of a friend or loved one through tzedakah, a donation toward a meaningful cause.
