New Website Offers Update to Traditional Yahrtzeit Plaques

Comments Off on New Website Offers Update to Traditional Yahrtzeit Plaques

Bringing a longtime Jewish tradition into the 21st century, United Synagogue recently launched Blessed Memory, a virtual memorial board giving individ-uals and congregations an opportunity to memorialize loved ones in an always accessible way online. Those who don’t belong to a synagogue or live far from the synagogue where their loved ones are honored with a traditional memorial plaque will ?nd it particularly helpful. Blessed Memory is underwritten by Mildred Werber to pay tribute to the mem-bers of her family who died in the Holo-caust who have no permanent memorial or marked graves. To further perpetuate Jewish education in their memory, funds raised through Blessed Memory will support the Conservative Yeshiva and the Fuchsberg Center in Jerusa-lem.
