Unveiling

An unveiling of the gravestone is typically held between nine months and the one-year anniversary (first yahrzeit) of a loved one’s passing. Please contact the clergy for resources and guidance for this ceremony.

Yahrzeit 

Yahrzeit plaques are usually placed in synagogues and are lit on the anniversary of the person's death, known as the Yahrzeit. This is a time for family and friends to come together to remember the person and to say prayers for their soul. The lighting of a Yahrzeit candle is a common way to mark this occasion and is a symbol of the soul's connection to God.

Honor your loved one by purchasing any of the following to commemorate their memory:
