Commemorate the memory of a loved one each year with a Ner Neshama
Yahrzeit is a Yiddish word meaning the anniversary of a death. According to Jewish tradition, this marks the annual anniversary of the death of a loved one (traditionally the anniversary of the Hebrew date, not the Gregorian date). Jews observe this Jewish custom in their homes by lighting a special long-burning candle in memory of the deceased. These candles can last from 24 to 72 hours.
It is customary to light the memorial candle at sunset on the Hebrew birthday (Jewish days begin at sunset, rather than at midnight).
