Memorials and Honors

At times of joy and celebration as well as times of sorrow and memory, tradition teaches us that we honor others by giving tzedakah. At Beth Or, there are many meaningful ways to commemorate special occasions such as b’nai mitzvah, weddings, anniversaries or other life cycle events as well as to honor or memorialize beloved family members through lasting dedicatory gifts. To learn about other named dedicatory opportunities such as plaques on classrooms, mezuzot, and other areas of Beth Or, please contact Amy Abrams.
