Lasting Memorial Gift
Yahrzeit is a Yiddish word meaning “time of year.” In Jewish tradition, it is the anniversary of the death of a relative, commemorated by the recitation of Kaddish, the mourner’s prayer.
At Charles E. Smith Life Communities, we invite you to honor the memory of your loved one by creating a lasting memorial with a gift of $450. We will engrave a yahrzeit plaque with their name and place it in the tranquil Meditation Alcove located in the Wasserman Residence of the Hebrew Home. Benefits of your gift include an annual written reminder of the approaching anniversary date and an assurance that the name of the deceased will always be read on the yahrzeit at daily services.
Your gift will support the Hebrew Home’s mission to provide older adults the chance to live their final years in the warm, caring, and uniquely Jewish home they deserve. Learn more by calling Elana Lippa, director, Gift Planning, at 301.770.8342.
