There are a number of ways to honor your loved ones at Temple Sinai, whether on our Tree of Life, the Wall of Remembrance, or through the Brick by Brick project.
Tree of Life
The Tree of Life sculpture was created by the renowned synagogue artist Sanford Werfel. The branches of the tree form the Hebrew words “Etz Chaim”. The stones at the roots of the Tree are symbolic of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. The golden leaves and stones may be inscribed to highlight or commemorate joyous occasions, including births, weddings, anniversaries, graduations or to honor family, parents or friends.
Cost: $175 to inscribe a leaf and $1,000 to inscribe a stone.
Wall of Remembrance
The Wall of Remembrance, located outside the Zwerin Sanctuary, is a way to memorialize the passing of a loved one. Nameplates are inscribed with the name of the departed along with the English and Hebrew date of death.
Brick by Brick Project
Set your legacy in stone and show your pride in our amazing community by purchasing a personalized, engraved brick that will be beautifully displayed outside our main building, seen for years to come. The inscriptions you choose can be as simple as your name(s) or it can commemorate a life-cycle event, honor the memory of a loved one, honor parents, friends, a special birthday or anniversary – whatever is meaningful to you. We want to give every member an opportunity to be a part of this special project that will be a permanent testament of our commitment to the future of Temple Sinai and the Jewish people.
