Yahrtzeit Commemoration Opportunities
It is the Jewish custom to remember family members and friends on the anniversary of their passing. Kaddish- a memorial prayer is recited, a yahrtzeit candle is lit, and tzedaka (charity) is given. Some families recite psalms or complete a tractate of Talmud or mishna in honor of a yahrtzeit.
Doing mitzvas and giving charity are a powerful way to memorialize the passing of a loved one. They influenced us and inspired us during their lives, and continue to do so even now. Additionally, our tradition teaches us that by taking meritorious actions in honor of the deceased, and giving tzedaka in their merit, it is counted as if they themselves performed the mitzvos.
Yad Eliezer offers various options to commemorate a loved one. Please see Donation Box above.
When making a donation in honor of a Yartzeit, please indicate the name of the person in English and the date of their passing in the comments box on the donation page.
