*z’’l – in blessed memory



Temple Beth Torah extends our condolences to Sue and Gary Schwartzman on the death of their nephew, Trevor Leopold. Trevor, beloved son of Michelle and Jeff Leopold and brother to Parker, was taken far too early on Sunday, 11/17 at only 18 years old. We offer our support to Sue, Gary, Aaron, and Danielle during their time of loss. In memory of Trevor, donations to organizations helping teenagers turn their lives around can be made to any of the following:

  • Marin YMCA Youth Court’s Restorative Justice Program

  • Be the Influence

  • Huckleberry Youth Programs

  • TUHSD Wellness Center

It is with the deepest sympathy that the Temple Beth Torah community extends condolences to Michael Regal and the entire Regal family on the passing of Michael's father, Dr. Edward Maurice Regal, who passed away on Monday, 11/12. 

Zichrono Livracha – may Trevor Leopold’s and Dr. Edward Maurice Regal's lives be a blessing to all who knew and loved them.

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.
