yahrtzeitThe Yahrtzeit is observed annually on the Jewish date of death. When death occurs after sunset, it is the following day that is used to calculate the Yahrtzeit. When three or more days have elapsed from the day of death until the interment, the first Yahrzeit is observed on the anniversary of the interment. On all subsequent years it is observed on the anniversary of the death. The Yahrtzeit begins at sunset on the preceeeding day and is concluded at sunset of the day of death. During the observance of the Yahrtzeit, a memorial Yahrtzeit candle is kept burning and the Mourner's Kaddish is recited during services in the Synagogue.

Congregation Beth Abraham has a Yahrtzeit databse that can provide you with an e-mail reminder of upcoming yahrtzeits. This service is available to members and non-members but requires that you have a password to access the website.

Yahrzeit reminders will be sent seven days before the Yahrtzeit to the e-mail address you provide when you register to use the database. If you have questions, find incorrect information in the database or would like to add information, please let us know.
