  • Make A Tribute Have a lovely card, with no mention of your donation amount, sent to someone. (Please include “In memory/honor of…” and the name/address of recipient in the online donation form comment box.)
  • Yahrzeit PJTC maintains a beautiful memorial wall of plaques bearing the names of our deceased members or deceased loved ones of our members.  You may purchase a bronze plaque which will be illuminated each year on Yizkor and on the day or week of the deceased’s yahrzeit.
  • "Life Seats" in Galperin SanctuaryFor many people coming to services, having a permanent seat in Galpert Sanctuary provides for familiarity with those around you as well as having the perfect perspective of the bima for prayer and reflection. For $1,800 we will provide you with a permanent "Life Seat" for all Shabbat and holiday services, as well as for the High Holy Days (except second day Rosh Hashanah). A beautiful plaque will be placed on the seat as a reminder to others that the seat/s are yours.
  • Tree of Life InscriptionsThe 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. For $150, a golden leaf may be inscribed to highlight or commemorate your happy events or to honor living parents, family or friends.
  • Communal Tallit Tapestry Record your blessings in PJTCs special custom crafted tallit, creatively stitched by artist Trudie Strobel, that will wrap our members in the joy and warmth of shared tradition. Mark your place in our temple’s history by permanently inscribing your family’s meaningful events on this communal piece of art.
