The Jewish Center of the Hamptons is a part of our everyday lives, and at the same time a place of sacred gathering. Your donation connects our members from Manhattan to Montauk as we come together at Shabbat, High Holy Days and festivals, celebrate the joys of birth, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and marriages, and comfort and console each other as we face illness, or mourn the loss of a loved one. Your donation impacts every soul that joins us on our Jewish journey.

Pew Plaques & Memorial Plaques
As we sit in our beautiful landmark sanctuary, we are warmed by its loveliness, soulfulness and openness to the world of the spirit and the physical world around us. We feel closer to God.
You can honor a loved one, or enshrine their memory by inscribing their name(s) on a Pew Plaque in the sanctuary. In that sacred space you will connect to the bonds between them and the divine.
A Pew Plaque in our Main Sanctuary may be purchased for $5,000.
According to Jewish tradition, we honor our loved one’s memory by reciting Kaddish and by lighting a Yahrzeit candle on the anniversary of their death, on Yom Kippur, and at each of our Yizkor services on Sukkot, Passover and Shavuot. A Memorial Plaque may be purchased with memorial lights kindled in sacred memory.
A Memorial Plaque may be purchased for $1,000.
