One of the most widely observed Jewish rituals is the lighting of a candle and saying the Mourner’s Kaddish on the yahrzeit of a loved one.  Though the literal translation of the Yiddish word is “time of year,” it is understood as the anniversary of an individual’s death on the Hebrew calendar.

Here at TBE, congregants who have the names and dates of their loved one’s passing listed in their Temple account (scroll down for instructions) will receive a letter well in advance of the yahrzeit.   It is quite common for people to make a donation to the synagogue in honor of the yahrzeit of the deceased.  Giving to the Jewish community in memory of a loved one is a beautiful way to pay tribute to their legacy of passing their values l’dor v’dor, from generation to generation.

Yahrzeits that fall on Shabbat are read during services.  If you would like your loved one's name read and it does not fall on a Saturday (Shabbat), please call Norma at 804-355-3564 ext. 100.
