5781 / 2020 Book of Remembrance

Memorial Candles

Remembrance is a soulful endeavor, and can often be a time of mixed emotions. Each year, we invite our congregants to submit the names of their departed loved ones for inclusion in our annual Book of Remembrance. It is customary to honor their memory with tzedakah (a charitable donation), which is traditionally given in a multiple of $18, which is symbolic of chai (life). 


Our annual Book of Remembrance contains inspirational poems, psalms, words of comfort, and the complete memorial service prayers. In addition, a listing of all the departed souls who have memorial plaques at Oheb Shalom is included, as well as the names of those you wish to remember. 

Submissions are due no later than Friday, August 7, 2020 to ensure your loved ones’ names are included in the Book of Remembrance.

To submit your information: fill out the form below and pay online through our secure website. (A 3% credit card fee applies.)

PLEASE NOTE: Our 2020 Yom Kippur service will be virtual. Our Book of Remembrances will be available to the congregation in three ways:

  1. A digital PDF posted on our website
  2. No contact pick-up at Oheb Shalom (details to come)
  3. By mail (only for members who are homebound)

Thank you for your continued support of Oheb Shalom. May we always cherish the memories of our loved ones who have passed, and may their memories always be a blessing.
