*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.


Temple Beth Torah extends our condolences to Barbara Nagel on the death of her beloved husband, Herb Nagel. Herb passed away on Monday, 1/13 at the age of 90 after a brief illness.  
Herb and Barbara were deeply devoted to one another and shared 45 years of happiness in marriage. As a Temple Beth Torah member, Herb always had a keen interest in the welfare of our congregation. He was passionate about politics and building a more just society.
Zichrono Livracha – may Herb’s life be a blessing to all who knew and loved him.



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