Wise Temple’s practice is to send an email notice to the entire congregation upon the death of a member or their loved one. When you notify the temple of your loss, we will ask your consent to send the email and work with you to ensure that we include the correct information. This email can include information about charitable contributions in memory of the deceased as well.
