Guidelines for Memorials and Commemorative Events

Many individuals and organizations seek to honor the members of New Light Congregation who died on October 27th in the worst anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history.

Often, it is desired that a family member of the deceased, a survivor or a congregant be present at your event. In order to limit the burden on the family members we ask that you complete the form at the bottom of the page as well as contact our Corresponding Secretary, Janet Cohen to advise us about your event or planned memorial with as much notice as possible prior to the event.

If there is to be a plaque or other certificate presented, we request that:

  • If names of deceased are included, each name is to be followed by Z”L [of blessed memory].
  • Name of the Congregation to which the individual belonged be included;

May Their Memory Be a Blessing
