Temple Israel still has spaces for commemorate bricks in its Brick Walkway. More than 110 commemorative inscribed bricks have already been installed. One does not have to be a member of Temple Israel to install a brick; businesses are also welcome.
“The Brick Walkway fund-raiser started as a way to raise money when the temple building collapsed in 2013,” said organizers of the fund-raiser. “For the cost of a tank of gas, you can create a lasting legacy. We’ll install and maintain your brick. Your help will make you feel better.”
The cost of the small brick is $100; larger bricks are available for $200 and $400. Inscriptions should be 14 characters long and two lines are available. Examples of inscriptions are those made in memory of or in honor of someone. Payment should be sent to Temple Israel, 4737 Deerfield Place, Vestal, NY 13850 with inscription information.
