Leaves for Life Cycle Events on our Tree of Life

Our Synagogue is proud to possess the Eytz Chaim, “Tree of Life” sculpture created by the noted synagogue artist, Sanford Werfel. It is permanently displayed in the Temple Beth Abraham lobby. The branches of the tree contain leaves which may be inscribed to highlight or commemorate such joyous events as births, weddings, anniversaries, bar and bat mitzvahs, graduations, or simply to honor parents, family or friends. Share your happy occasions by inscribing your family Simchas on our synagogue’s Tree of Life.

The price per leaf is $360 for members, $450 for non-members. For more information or an order form, please contact the temple office at (914) 631-1770 or
