Yahrzeit refers to the anniversary, according to the Hebrew calendar, of the day of death of a loved one. Alternative spellings include yahrtzeit, yortsayt, and yartzeit. On the anniversary of a death, it is the custom to light a candle to commemorate the departure of a loved one. [1]

If you know the Hebrew but not the Gregorian date, use the Hebrew Date Converter to get the Gregorian date and then come back to this page.
