*z’’l – in blessed memory

Tree of Life / Memorial Plaques


Would you like to memorialize a beloved family member or friend who is no longer with us? 


Have you had a memorable family happening this year, such as a new baby, an engagement, a wedding, or a Bar or Bat Mitzvah?


Think of how wonderful it would be to put a leaf on our beautiful Tree of Life in commemoration of a loved one's memory, or a joyous event. In the years to come, you will see the leaf, and the blessed memories of loved ones or of happy occasions will come to mind again. 


Purchase a leaf on our Tree of Life or a memorial plaque, and engrave the names of special people or special life moments forever. The cost for a leaf is $125, and the cost for a memorial plaque is $500. 


Credit card payments for leafs and memorial plaques can be made from our Payment and Donations page, but please be sure to inquire with Jill in the office to provide her with details for the personal engravings.


It is with sadness we inform the congregation of the death of Dr. Melvin Hoch. Mel is predeceased by his wife, Alice and his brother, Irving. We extend our condolences to his son, Richard; his daughter, Deborah (Alan Cohen); and

his grandchildren Or, Lilah, and Sophia. Mel was a longtime member of Temple Beth Torah having joined when the family moved to Fremont in the mid-1960s. He was a devoted pediatrician who practiced for many years until his retirement. 

Temple Beth Torah also extends our condolences to Herman Rosenbaum on the death of his sister, Ruth Schack. Ruth is survived by her sons Michael, Paul, Barton, and David; as well as six grandchildren. We offer our support to Herman and Rosalie during their time of loss.
Zichrona Livracha: may Mel Hoch's and Ruth Schack’s lives be a blessing to all who knew and loved them.


Zecher Tzaddik Livracha - “May the Memory of the Righteous Be For a Blessing.”
