Yahrzeit (Yiddish word) is the anniversary of the death of a close relative (parent, sibling, child or spouse) in the Jewish calendar. It is customary to light a Yahrzeit candle and recite Mourners Kaddish.

Some people visit the cemetery, fast, give donations to charity and/or call the deceased’s relatives to wish them ‘Long Life’.

Keeping Yahrzeit is a long standing Jewish tradition that keeps the links between the generations and has religious connotations for the soul of the person who has passed-on.
