Judaism recognizes and embraces the blessing of memory. We are comforted by our tradition and the beautiful Kaddish prayer.
Listing in our annual High Holy Days Yizkor Book of Remembrance is open to all, members and visitors alike.
The Wine Family Sanctuary Member Memorial Wall displays the names of CBST Members who have passed away, with a special memorial for those murdered in the Shoah and those lost to AIDS.
CBST members may place memorials to family & friend in the Kuriel Chapel. CBST sends a reminder to mourners each year, noting the upcoming yortzeit and Shabbat service date when the name will be read from the bimah. The Memorial Wall curently bears the memorials brought from our prior synagogue on Bethune Street, along with the dedications since our move to West 30th Street. The wall is currently full. Our leadership is exploring a new, beautiful, meaningful, interactive and appropriate memorial option. Please contact Ruth at 212-929-9498 x 815 to express your interest in memorializing a loved one and we will be in touch with updates and options as soon as the plan is finalized.
May the memory of your loved one be for a blessing.
