Pulpit Flower Form

Congregation Emanu-El Israel

Sisterhood Pulpit Flower Order Form 5783

How praiseworthy are the father and mother that raised this child.

     One is duty bound to honor one’s parents, even after their death.  Both sons and daughters fulfill this duty by keeping the yahrzeit, by contributing to charity in honor of the deceased, and most importantly by living a life that brings them credit.  (Rabbi Hayim H. Donin)

After a year of chaos, as we joyfully begin to return to normal, we hope that you will take this opportunity to order pulpit flowers for the coming year for loved ones and friends.  Since we update our records annually, we need a new form from you each year if you want to order pulpit flowers.

To order pulpit flowers for a yahrzeit (anniversary of death), Rosh Hashana and/or Yom Kippur send a letter to the CEI office with the following information:

  1. List the name of the honored deceased. Please be sure to list the yahrzeit date including the year of death on the form.  If you do not know – please call the CEI office.  Also, please indicate whether you prefer to observe the Hebrew or Civil date.
  2. List if you wish the name honored as a yahrzeit (anniversary of death), Rosh Hashana and/or Yom Kippur.
  3. Count the number of honors in the yahrzeit column and multiply by $10.00 for each. Then add up the number of of honors in the Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur columns and multiply by $15.00 for each.  Add these amounts together and send a check, payable to Sisterhood Pulpit Flowers, along with this form to:
