The word ‘Yahrzeit’ is Yiddish and is translated to mean “time of year.” In Judaism, there is a focus on carrying on the memory of those before us from generation to generation. Based on Jewish law, the Yahrzeit is the day one year following the death of a loved one as calculated in accordance with the Hebrew calendar.

This remembrance is performed annually by reciting the Mourner’s Kaddish and burning a Yahrzeit candle for 24 hours. Remembrances also take place at Yizkor services on Yom Kippur and the three pilgrimage festivals (Passover, Shavuot and Sukkot). It is customary to mark each Yahrzeit by giving tzedakah in memory of our beloved.

Please login and visit your personal account to manage your family's Yahrzeit list. Congregation B'nai Israel will notify you by mail several weeks in advance of an upcoming Yahrzeit observance. 

To dedicate a memorial plaque to a loved one at Congregation B'nai Israel, please use the Memorial Plaque (Yahrzeit) Order Form and return it to the temple office.
