For Tribute & Remembrance

Scroll Book
One of the most beautiful annual traditions at Ohabei Shalom is the listing of the names of our departed in the Scroll Book. This memorial booklet is distributed on Yom Kippur afternoon, before the Yizkor service.
$36 per name/Member price $18 per name

Dedicate a Bookplate
We are now using the Reform Movement’s inspirational new prayer books, Mishkan HaNefesh. If you’d like to honor special people in your life or remember loved ones no longer with us, we invite you to dedicate a prayer book with a bookplate.
$72 per name/Member price $54 per name

Book of Remembrance
The first name that appears in this precious heirloom, located in the back of the Montague Chapel, is that of Judah Touro, who died in 1854. He was the benefactor of many charitable and civic organizations, including the Touro Synagogue in Newport, and Ohabei Shalom. The pages of the Book of Remembrance are exquisitely decorated, and each name is inscribed in beautiful calligraphy. As with the yahrzeit plaques, names are automatically listed in the annual Scroll Book and in the appropriate Shabbat Bulletin each year.
$650 per name/Member price $450 per name

Yahrzeit/Memorial Plaques
Names may be inscribed on bronze plaques that are placed on the large tablets located in our main Sanctuary. Each memorial plaque is illuminated on the Shabbat evening and morning ending the week in which the yahrzeit occurred. The name is also listed in the Shabbat Bulletin that week, and in the Scroll Book, which is distributed on Yom Kippur (see above).
$1,500 per name/Member price $900 per name

Buy a Brick
Help pave the path for our future and inscribe a brick on our walkway at the entrance to the Trust Center for Early Education. Bricks can be engraved with the names of those you wish to honor, remember, or thank.
$2,000 for a 4x8 inch brick/Member price 1,000
$3,600 for a 8x8 inch brick/Member price $1,800

Sanctuary Seat Plaque

$3,600 per plaque/Member price $2,000 per plaque

Sanctuary Row Plaque
You may endow a row in the Sanctuary in honor of any life cycle event—in your own name or in that of a loved one. Endowing an entire row of the Sanctuary is a unique opportunity to honor or remember someone special in your life.
