Simchas, Memorial Plaques, Mahzorim and The Illustrated Torah

Temple Israel Simcha Tree

Looking for a great way to mark a special simcha? Why not purchase a leaf on Temple Israel’s Simcha Tree, located in the Leon & Sandra Levine Social Hall?

Simcha Tree Leaves can be purchased to mark your special family or individual accomplishments, such as a birth, consecration, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, confirmation, a milestone birthday, graduation, engagement, marriage, or anniversary.

Cost is $180.  To purchase a Simcha Tree leaf, please click here.


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.

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



In the fall of 2014, Temple Israel transitioned to Mahzor Lev Shalem. Lev Shalem is an updated Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur prayer book that offers new resources to deepen our shared experience over the Days of Awe.

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



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.
