Bringing Our Temple Family Together
Members have been asking Temple to alert them when fellow congregant families experience the death of loved ones. In response, Temple is implementing a new alert program via email. In the event of a death, members will receive an email with the name of the affected congregants, plus any funeral, memorial, shiva or donation information provided. Of course members can opt out of having notifications sent on their behalf in the event of a death, as well as opt out of receiving any death notification emails.
