Yahrzeit (Anniversary of Death)

Yahrzeit is the observance of the anniversary of the date of death. Many light a special yahrzeit candle, which burns for a full twenty-four hours starting at sundown the night before the observance of your loved ones death. At Shabbat services following the yahrzeit, the names of loved ones of Temple Beth El members will be read in their honor prior to the reading of Kaddish. If you are not a member of Temple Beth El, you may call the rabbi’s office to request the name of your loved one to be recited at the Shabbat service closest to their annual Yahrzeit date.

For information on honoring a loved one on our Yahrzeit Wall, please contact the Mausoleum Office at 561-391-8901.
