Memorial & Yahrzeit Funds

Memorial funds honor the memory of a member of the community with projects they were passionate about. Yizkor donations are traditionally made to this fund when a person is reciting the Yizkor prayer on the anniversary date of the passing of a loved one (Yarhzeit). It is a special way of honoring the memory of a loved one. A contribution to STS helps to ensure that the synagogue will be there to continue to provide a warm and nurturing place for the mourner to be able to perform the mitzvah of reciting the Yizkor prayer. Order a Memorial Plaque for recognizion on the wall in Heytow chapel. Download the form here and make the payment online or by check to STS.

Scholar-in-Residence Fund

STS member Lazer Cohen (z"l) shared with many of us his belief that one day, the fields of science and religion would come to a meeting point in explaining the origins of the world and god. In his memory we are excited to announce a new fund for Shomrei Torah Synagogue, the Lazer Cohen CosmoTheology Scholar-in-Residence Fund. This fund will allow for an annual speaker event that brings top scholars in the fields of religion, technology and cosmology to share with STS the growing understanding of how these fields complement one another.

Ezra Fund

Established in 2017, The Ezra Fund" means "help" in Hebrew and was established to support members and nonmembers of the Shomrei Torah Synagogue community who are experiencing emergency situations. Over the past years, this fund has provided funding for housing, food, and utilities for both community members and nonmembers who have suffered job losses, severe illness, and financial hardships. Just a few of the ways this fund has provided immediate help was by paying for a funeral, keeping an individual in their home by paying the utilities and rent and supporting 24-hour end of life nursing care. The generosity of the Shomrei Torah community has made a significant impact in the lives of many people since inception.
