Warm Place. Cool Shul.
In keeping with the tradition of giving tzedakah to honor our loved ones’ memory, memorial plaques, stained glass windows and listing in the Yizkor Book may be purchased. Also, family and friends may send synagogue fund tributes printed in the bulletin to honor those whom we have lost.

It is a sacred custom to light a memorial candle and recite the Mourners’ Kaddish for a loved one on the day of the yahrzeit, the Hebrew anniversary of a death, beginning the night before. At Adath Israel, we read the name of every yahrzeit on the date of this commemoration, at daily services, on Friday night at Shabbat services, and on holidays. Memorial Plaques are automatically lit on yahrzeit dates.
Yizkor Book of Remembrance
- Names may be added each year to our Yizkor Book of Remembrance during the summer months, leading up to the High Holidays. Forms are available each year in the main office to renew your current listing or add names.

Memorial Scroll Trust
Eleanor Glaser, z"l, a past president of the Adath Israel Sisterhood, was an active member of Adath Israel for many years. A highlight of her service to our congregation was her tenacity in obtaining and establishing our synagogue as a home to one of the Torahs looted by the Nazis from the Pincus synagogue in Prague. The Torah (Sefer Torah MST #391) resides in a case in the lobby outside the Mandell Sanctuary.
