Temple Avodah is pleased to offer opportunites for permanent remembrances.
Our Tree of Life A beautiful artistic tree, prominently displayed in our Temple Lobby. A leaf on our “Tree of Life” can be purchased in honor of a celebratory or milestone event such as Bar/Bat Mitzvah, graduation or wedding, or just a way to say "I love you.". Etched in brass colored leaves for a lasting memory.
Memorial Plaques Buying a memorial plaque that will be mounted on the synagogue wall provides a lasting remembrance of a loved one. A seat plaque can also be mounted in the sanctuary for any occasion.
Our Walkway of Memories Purchasing a brick on the“Walk of Honor” outside the entrance to the synagogue is another way of honoring/celebrating a loved one or remembering a special occasion. An ideal way to honor an anniversary, birthday, graduation or special event. It is also a perfect way to remember a friend or loved one who is no longer with us. Bricks are permanently etched. Available in single or double sized bricks. Click here for a copy of the order form that can be printed and mailed.
