At NJMW.org, members can create a memorial plaque online as well as set reminders for Yahrzeit. Through the new partnership with JNF, a Plant-A-Tree option has been added where people can plant commemorative trees in Israel with JNF.
"JNF strives to provide new and exciting services for our donors," said Amanda Levine, JNF Products Manager. "Creating online memorial plaques and setting up Yahrzeit Reminders are two things we are thrilled to be able to offer our donors who memorialize loved ones with the longstanding tradition of planting trees in Israel."
Memorial plaques placed on the walls of synagogues traditionally serve as touchstones for the bereaved. NJMW takes those plaques to the next level by allowing people to create them online, as well as write tributes to their loved ones, share stories, and post pictures on a dedicated memory page. Now, members will also be able to participate in the time-honored tradition of planting trees in Israel with JNF in memory of loved ones. For each tree planted, a beautiful certificate is sent to the recipient with a personalized message.
"We created this website for friends and family members to have a place to share and take part in certain Jewish traditions," said Michael Schimmel, founder and CEO of NJMW. "In part, we help bring together family members who live in different parts of the world to maintain family relationships by providing a platform to honor and commemorate. We are proud to partner with JNF to offer our members the meaningful option of planting trees in Israel as a tribute to their loved ones." Please visit us at NJMW.org.
NATIONAL JEWISH MEMORIAL WALL (NJMW.org) merges present day technology with traditional Jewish rituals. It is a widely observed Jewish tradition to commemorate the passing of a loved one. The National Jewish Memorial Wall provides a location where relatives and friends, separated by physical location can interact and perpetuate the life of one who has passed.
JEWISH NATIONAL FUND (JNF) began in 1901 as a dream and vision to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere. Jews the world over collected coins in iconic JNF Blue Boxes, purchasing land and planting trees until ultimately, their dream of a Jewish homeland was a reality. JNF gives all generations of Jews a unique voice in building a prosperous future for the land of Israel and its people.
JNF is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and United Nations NGO, which continuously earns top ratings from charity overseers.
