High Holy Days 2022/5783: Writing your Loved Ones' Names  in the 5783 Book of Remembrance

Yizkor is a time we remember and honor our departed loved ones. Traditionally we make a donation in their memory, “Ehtain Tzedakah bah-ah-dah...I will donate charity in her or his sake.”

If you would like to include the name(s) of your loved ones in our Book of Remembrance, please fill out the form below (or contact the office) at office@wsthz.org or 708.366.9000, by Monday, September 12 (or until we've closed the form). The minimum requested donation is $20 per name. Thank you!

Again this year we will be incorporating a section where we will acknowledge your tributes to loved ones by listing them under your name. (Look at last year's book as an example.)

And new this year—you can to add a personal message or greeting this year along with your list. We are planning on adding space for a sentence or two (literally, one line) to include your message to the congregation. We are requesting a minimum additional donation of $36 to share your and/or your family's words within the book.

If you are able to contribute more than the suggested amount for your memorial names, or if you would like to assist in underwriting the cost of producing the Book of Remembrance for the congregation, please consider increasing your donation. The cost of producing the book has escalated recently.

If you have questions, concerns, or need a hand filling out this form, please call or write the office or leave us a comment or concern in the box at the bottom of the form. 

Book of Remembrance Form

Yizkor is a time we remember and honor our departed loved ones. Traditionally we make a donation in their memory, “Ehtain Tzedakah bah-ah-dah...I will donate charity in her or his sake.”

We are continuing to offer the newer section where you can offer tributes to specific loved ones, listing them after your name. 

Here is an example of what some entries might look like:


Isaac and Miriam Cohen                                The Eisen Family
        Joseph Cohen                                                Margaret Engel Eisen
        Hyram Cohen                                                 Amelia Bloom
        Minnie Klein                                                    Our friends & family

Please fill out "Name of Donor" in the form below exactly as you want to be recognized (“The Cohen Family” or “Isaac and Miriam Cohen”, etc.). Then list the people you wish to remember here, one per "In Memory of (Name)" box. 

You may enter any loved one's name in this personalized section. If the loved one is already remembered in the temple with a memorial plaque, then please indicate it by checking the "plaque" box after the person's name. There is no cost to list names of people who have memorial plaques in this section. We continue to list all of the plaques in another section of the book.


Members and friends who have names they wish to be included in this personalized section must complete this form by Monday, September 12th. We ask for a minimum donation of $20 for each name submitted unless there is a memorial plaque for that name. If you have checked the plaque box next to the name to inform us of the plaque there is no charge for that listing.

If you would like information about dedicating a memorial plaque please let us know (office@wsthz.org).

If you would like to add a personal message or greeting, this year we are adding space for a sentence or two (literally, one long line) should you want to send a message to the congregation. We are requesting a minimum donation of $36 for this, to assist with funding the publication of this Book of Remembrance.


If you are able to contribute more than the suggested amount or would like to underwrite the cost of producing the Book of Remembrance, please consider an increased donation. 

If you have questions or need a hand filling out this form please call (708-366-9000) or
 write the office or leave us a comment or concern in the box at the bottom of this form. Thank you for your continued support of Temple Har Zion.

 
Please check the box indicating a plaque next to any name that has one.
Should you choose to add an individual message to the congregations please include it here. (We are requesting an additional $36 donation to assist with the publication of the book.)

A minimum donation of $20 per name requested

A minimum donation of $36 is requested if you have submitted a message to the congregation. The printing of the book is no longer funded by a former member family.

Thank you!
