Memorial/Remembrance Opportunities at Shir Hadash

On Thursday, May 18, Shir Hadash installed a magnificent Memorial Wall with individual plaques recording the Hebrew and English name of the deceased and the date of birth and passing. The wall is located at the back of the sanctuary. Having a Memorial Plaque for a loved one ensures that Yahrzeit will be observed for them in perpetuity by our congregation.  For more information, please contact the synagogue office at 847-498-8218 or

Many people tell us that they want a loved one to be remembered in perpetuity. The next time you are in the synagogue, look at our beautifully lit Memorial Plaques on the walls within the Sanctuary. Each Plaque ensures that the name of your loved one will be read on his or her Yahrzeit, and the plaque’s light will be lit at the four annual Yizkor services.  For more information, please contact the synagogue office at 847-498-8218 or
