Tree of Life


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 $180, 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 Mara in the office to provide her with details for the personal engravings.
