Cemetery Project…Do you know these people?

There are many traditions surrounding those of the Jewish faith after the death of a loved one. Yahrzeit is one tradition, in which we remember the anniversary of the death of someone who has passed.  It is observed each year by lighting a memorial candle and reciting the kaddish during services.  In this way we cherish our departed family members, and they are never really gone from us.  We would are attempting to preserve the memories of those who founded and supported our synagogue by collecting further information about their lives.  Please email us at bnaiisrael901@gmail.com or leave comments below that will be archived into B’nai Israel’s history project.

Please visit the “cemetery” tab on the home page to view images of members’ headstones.
