Summer Intern Update – Yahrzeit with Clayton Oppenheimer
In between the tutoring sessions of B’nei Mitzvah students, I’ve been working on improving how we organize the Yahrzeit plaques and updating the database so we can locate each of them with ease. It is not as exciting as tutoring, but this will help a family wanting to remember or honor their lost loved ones in finding their memorialized plaque. These plaques perpetuate and cherish the legacies of our fallen loved ones. Honoring the people you love should be stress-free.
As I learn patience from this monotonous task, I also feel this a very important aspect to the congregation and all the loved ones of those memorialized. It is beautiful to be able to spark memories from these plaques to current loved ones, but through time it will spark interest of lost distant relatives and their legacies to the future families of our congregation.
