The Founders Hall Memorial Wall of Tribute

At Temple Sinai, we take pride in our beautiful Wall of Tribute.  The Wall of Tribute graces Founder’s Hall and has raised over $70,000 during the last decade.  More than half of the funds generated were used for capital improvements including new lighting and air conditioning.  Additional funds were used to help build the handicapped-accessible bathroom.  The Wall, established by Irwin and Mildred Zeramby, is a wonderful way to honor someone special, and is immediately viewed by everyone walking through our main doors. 

Create a lasting tribute to celebrate a simchah (joyous life event) – such as a birthday, wedding, anniversary, brit milah, brit bat, baby naming, bar or bat mitzvah, or choose to memorialize a loved one(s) or his or her special accomplishments.  

For more information, please contact the office at 781-631-2763.
