Congregation B'nai Israel 

Yizkor/Memorial Book 5781/2020-2021

Dear Member or Friend of Congregation B'nai Israel:

One of the most emotionally moving customs of our congregation is the remembrance of our departed relatives and friends. The 5781/2020-2021 version of our Memorial Book will be used during Yizkor Services and other occasions throughout the year.

This is a year like no other. For that reason, we are reaching out to let you know of some modifications that we are making so that we can continue to produce the book, albeit in a different form. We are, at this point, uncertain as to whether we will be able to hold High Holy Day Services in our sanctuary, virtually, or both. Regardless, you will receive the book via email to enable you to participate in our Yom Kippur Yizkor Service from your home, if need be. Books in hard copy will be made available for those who wish to have them.

As a member, if you had a listing in last year's book, it will be repeated unchanged. If you have any changes, corrections or sadly, additions, or any other questions, please contact one of us listed below by August 1, 2020 and we will assist you. We may not be able to make corrections, additions or changes after that date.

Please include your written instructions and donation, payable by check, and mail by August 1st

Congregation B'nai Israel Memorial Book
171 Ridge Road
Rumson, NJ 07760


This year you also have the option of paying by credit card by calling Alice Macphee, CBI Bookkeeper, at 732 842-1800, x211, or email her at

Or you may pay online directly at this link:


As in the past, non-members are invited to participate, at a required minimum donation of $18 per line.

If we do not hear from members, their listings will remain unchanged. If we do not hear from non-members, their listings will not be included.

Thank you in advance for your participation and understanding in these difficult times.

The Memorial Book Committee
