Honoring & Memorializing


Temple Sholom offers many opportunities to honor and memorialize loved ones.  Those interested in any of the options listed below should contact the temple office at (973) 239-1321 or office@sholom.net

Tree of Life  The  Tree of Life, a striking sculpture located in the temple lobby, commemorates special events in the lives of our congregants.  Bronze leaves are $72; silver leaves are $180; and gold leaves are $360.  The rocks at the base of the tree are priced by size:  a small rock is $1,800 and a large one is $3,600.

Walkway Bricks  Personalized bricks on the walkway at the temple’s main entrance are also available to commemorate special events in the lives of congregants.  A brick can be inscribed for $136.

Prayer Bookplates   A personalized bookplate, available for $72 , can be inserted into a copy of the temple’s prayer book, Suddur Netivot Sholom.  These are appropriate to honor a friend or family member, recognize a simcha or remember a loved one.

Memorial Plaques   The memory of a departed one can be honored by having his or her name inscribed on a solid brass memorial plaque on the memorial wall in the temple’s lobby.  Plaques are available for $375.

Memorial Book  Loved ones can also be remembered by including their names in the temple’s High Holy Day Memorial Book.  Congregants receive information about this publication prior to the High Holy Days each year.
