memorial-wall-plaquesRemembering those who came before us

By memorializing the names of our deceased loved ones, we express our gratitude for the gifts of their precious lives—and the hope that their spirits will continue to inspire us.

Temple members commemorate loved ones by making charitable gifts in their honor and by adding plaques in their names to our beautiful Memorial Wall. Located in the Temple Sanctuary, the elegant and luminous Memorial Wall was designed by Los Angeles artist Lita Albuquerque and installed in 2013.

In accordance with Jewish tradition, we honor the memories of those who have passed away when the Kaddish prayer is recited at worship services. We mark the memories of these loved ones by illuminating their plaques during yahrzeit (the annual anniversary of their deaths), and illuminating all plaques at Yizkor services on Yom Kippur, Shemini Atzeret, Pesach, and Shavuot.

For information about ordering a Memorial Wall plaque, please contact Cristina Mauro in the Membership Office at (213) 835-2142 or by email at cmauro@wbtla.org.
