On the walls of our beautifully restored Main Synagogue are mounted seven tablets bearing our community’s precious memorial plaques.  These plaques represent a traditional and dignified memorial to loved ones.

As KJ, now in its 150th year, we abide our longstanding tradition of keeping the lights lit on either side of the plaque each year during the full month of the Yahrzeit and also when we recite Yizkor on Yom Kippur, Shemini Atzeret, Pesach, and Shavuot.

The cost of plaques is $1,500 which is tax deductible.  If you have relatives whom you wish to memorialize, and/or you would like to reserve plaque spaces for yourself and other living relatives - you should not need them until after 120 years - now would be a good time to order plaques and keep all of your family’s plaques together in the same location.  You need not be a formal KJ member to order Memorial Plaques.

To order online, please use the form below.  To order by paper, please use this form and return it to the KJ Office, accompanied by a single check made payable to “KJ” covering your total order.  If you would like to speak with someone about this opportunity, please contact Sy Yanofsky in the Synagogue Office at (212) 774-5620 or

May we be blessed to honor, in good health, the memories of those whom we love, for a long time to come.
