Yahrzeit Memorial Displays

Create a lasting tribute to your husband, wife, parent, child or friend, through enrollment in the Alvin A. Hyman Jewish War Veterans Memorial Display.

You may prepay the fee and when the time comes your family need only inform us of the vital statistics.

What better way to honor your loved ones than to keep their memories alive. Now, you can provide a living tribute to your dear departed through enrollment in a unique, state-of-the-art yahrzeit display.

The tradition of remembrance is fulfilled through this unique electronic yahrzeit. Names are displayed on a video screen in the museum exhibit area and also on the Yahrzeit web page on the date of the yahrzeit. The information may also be accessed any day of the year by doing a search of the database. Vital information of birth and death, along with background on the individual's affiliation with JWV and/or the U.S. Armed Forces, will be included. Any person can be included in the Memorial Display. The name of the sponsor will also be displayed on the screen.

Your gift of $250 for the listing, which includes a photograph, if supplied and a short bio, supports the National Museum of American Jewish Military History in Washington, DC. Your generosity helps secure the future of the NMAJMH, offering future generations a glimpse at the history you yourself helped to make- the history of the Jewish contribution to peace and freedom, through the defense of America.

So, honor and preserve the past and protect the future of the National Museum. It's a tribute to those who came before and those who are yet to be.
