Remembrance and Renewal

We are eagerly looking forward to the completion of the refresh of our campus and anticipate celebrating its conclusion, together under one roof, just before the High Holy Days.

As we move closer to the Yamim Nora’im, we approach the season where we dedicate ourselves to the process of remembering and renewing. We remember those we have lost, recall our past deeds and promises, and we renew our commitment to mitzvot, to one another, and to our community.

There are several ways you can remember and renew. After you click "Submit" at the bottom of the page, you will be directed to a secure page to enter your payment information. 




Your Gift


In celebration of our newly refreshed sanctuary, we will usher in the new year by davening with new siddurim. We plan to purchase 1,000 copies of Siddur Lev Shalem, the exciting new siddur from the Rabbinical Assembly. Members will have the opportunity to memorialize loved ones or celebrate lifecycle events by dedicating a siddur for $36. The new bookplates will offer a chance to share a few words about the person being honored or memorialized. Click here to view the bookplate design.




Note: Enter the number of copies of Siddur Lev Shalem that you wish to purchase below. All copies will have the same name and inscription on the book plate. If you wish to honor or memorialize more than one person, please click "add another gift" below.



Names are inscribed on the plaques during the winter and a beautiful dedication and memorial ceremony takes place in the early spring.

Donations begin at $1,800 for a single name and $2,400 to memorialize a couple. The final total cost depends upon the number of characters to be inscribed.

If you would like to honor the memory of a loved one in this way, please enter your details below. We will contact you to finalize the arrangements and discuss the gift associated with this order. 

Please note: In order for inscriptions to be completed in time for the annual ceremony, donations must be completed by December 15.




This year, we are introducing a new online Yizkor Book. It will be published on the BJ website in November and will be renewed annually. A simple listing will be available for $36*, or you can submit an extended listing including a photograph for $118*, providing an opportunity to share your story.

* Please note that each listing includes one name only. If you wish to include more than one name in the Yizkor Book, please click "add another gift" below to purchase additional listings.
