Yahrzeit Plaques:

Yahrzeit is the yearly anniversary (according to the Hebrew calendar) of a loved one’s death.  Jews observe yahrzeit at home  the night before by lighting a special long-burning candle in memory of the deceased.

Yahrzeit is also observed by reciting the Mourner’s Kaddish at services. You are invited and encouraged to let us know the name and yahrzeit of your beloved ones who have departed from us. We will honor their memory by announcing their name prior to reciting the Mourner’s Caddish during services. May you be comforted among all the mourners of Israel. It is traditional to avoid attending any celebrations or parties on the day of yahrzeit, and some people fast on that day.

PJTC maintains a beautiful memorial wall of plaques bearing the names of our deceased members or deceased loved ones of our members.

You can purchase a bronze plaque as a way of honoring your loved one, which also supports PJTC.  Each year the plaque is illuminated on the day or week of the deceased’s yahrzeit.

If you wish to order a Yahrzeit Plaque, the cost is $350.  Please click on the link to fill out the Yahrzeit Plaque Order Form, and click here to pay for the plaque.

Tree of Life

The sculpture on the 2nd floor overlooking the main lobby represents the Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center’s Tree of Life.  The Tree’s golden leaves become perpetual symbols of the joys of life.

The golden leaves may be inscribed to highlight or commemorate such happy events as births, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, or to honor living parents, family or friends.

Share the happiness by inscribing your family’s “simchas” on the Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center Tree of Life . . . a permanent dedication to the meaningful and happy events that touch our lives.

A Tree of Life plaque is $150, please click here to access the form.
