It is a widely observed Jewish tradition to commemorate the passing of a relative or loved one on the walls inside the synagogue. Synagogues devote an area within or near the sanctuary to memorializing those that have departed on a dedicated memorial wall. Memorial plaques are inscribed with the English and Hebrew names of the departed along with the date of death in both the standard and Hebrew calendar. Beside each plaque is a memorial light, which is lit annually on the Yahrzeit and Yizkor services.
