This is one of two memorial or yahrzeit plaques that hung at Anshe Sfard on Cumberland Avenue in Portland until the synagogue closed in the 1950s.

The plaques list the names of members of the congregation who died, and the death dates. On the Hebrew date of the anniversary of the person's death, the bulb next to the name is lighted.

The plaques were saved from Anshe Sfard and placed at Etz Chaim on Congress Street in Portland.
