Memorial Plaque

A meaningful way to honor a loved one’s memory at BJ is to inscribe their name on our Memorial Plaque in the Sanctuary. Donations start at $1,800 for a single name, and $2,400 to memorialize a couple.

Members who inscribe the name of loved ones on BJ’s Memorial Plaque participate in a short, moving Dedication Ceremony, and share a few words about the person they’re memorializing. Family and friends are welcome to participate.

Online Yizkor Book

In 2017, we introduced an online Yizkor Book, which can be viewed on the BJ website all year and will be renewed annually. This year’s Yizkor Book is now open for submissions.


Book Hammocks

Though we benefit in many ways by not having pews in our Sanctuary, there is a challenge on Shabbat morning when we hold both the siddur and humash with no storage space. BJ’s new book hammocks protect our books by providing simple and elegant storage underneath the chairs in our Sanctuary, while enabling members to congregate more closely. A single book hammock is offered for $36. Contact Jennifer Rubenstein for more information.
