Yahrtzeit Dedications and Sponsorship Opportunities

CBS helps its members to remember the yahrtzeit's of their loved ones by providing opportunities for mourners to memorialize their relatives and uplift their neshama (soul).

On the occasion of a yahrzeit you may consider a dedication or sponsorship opportunity (including a Kiddush, our Torah Weekly publication, weekly classes, guest speakers and Scholars-In-Residence, Seudah Shlishit, siddurim, chumashim, etc.) in order to memorialize your beloved relative.

Members can sponsor our Daf Yomi Talmud Class for one day at $50, one week at $150, or $500 for the entire month in which the yahrzeit occurs.  In this way, the Torah learning conducted by the class will be directed towards uplifting the neshama (soul) of your relative.

Memorial Plaques

Members may dedicate memorial plaques in the CBS Beit Midrash in memory of their relatives.  Memorial plaques are a permanent remembrance of your relatives at CBS.  Plaques are available for $500.  Contact for more information.
