Temple Israel Memorial Plaques


A Memorial Plaque is a lasting way to honor your loved one who has passed away. Memorial Plaques are engraved bronze and are displayed at Temple Israel in perpetuity. Our Temple’s Memorial Plaques are on display as people walk to the Chapel.  Their beauty and meaning evokes thousands of years of culture and tradition.  Members customarily purchase memorial plaques on the yarzeit of their loved one.

Cost is $400.  To purchase a Memorial Plaque, please click here to download an order form..

For more information about Simcha Leaves or Memorial Plaques, please contact our Membership Director, Erin Goldstein, at 980-960-2380.


Mahzorim/Humashim Bookplates


This year, Temple Israel will offer two different opportunities to honor your loved one(s) with the contribution of a prayer book or service accompaniment. Mahzor Lev Shalem is used each High Holy Day season and includes resources and commentary to deepen our community’s shared worship experiences.

The Etz Hayim Humash includes the Hebrew text and English translation of each Torah and Haftorah portion, providing a way to follow along during Shabbat, weekday and festival services, in addition to multiple commentaries and essays.

To honor your loved one(s) with a Mahzor or Humash, please complete an order form (download here)– also available at Temple Israel in the kiosks and Clergy office and submit a $36 charitable donation per Mahzor  and a $72 charitable donation per Humash.


The Illustrated Torah


The Illustrated Torah, created with the gifted hand of Israeli artist Michal Meron, is a beautiful, hand-painted scroll that represents the stories within the 54 weekly parshot of our traditional Torah through highlighted texts and vibrant images. You can feel it, interact with it, experience it and learn from it.

Reserve your place in Temple Israel’s history. Purchase a pasuk (verse), aliyah or parsha corresponding to a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, anniversary, birthday or any other simcha. Or purchase an entire book. For more information, please click here.
