History/Provenance

Temple Beth Israel of Deerfield was moved into its new permanent home in 1978. Many congregants were Holocaust Survivors who, in the 1990s raised about $30,000 and created the memorial monument. At the time, the Beth Israel was the largest Conservation congregation in the area with many members living in nearby Century Village.

At the monument dedication on Yom Ha-Shoah (April 26, 1998), survivors told stories of what they experienced during the Holocaust. They lit candles as part of the vigil and recited Kaddish for the dead.
