In Loving Memory - Yahrtzeit Project



In Loving Memory


There are different ways to remember our loved one

1. On our memorial wall, by adding your loved ones' names. 


2. You can come to the synagogue and say Kaddish on the Yahrzeit,
or ask us to say Kaddish on your behalf.


In Jewish tradition it is customary to recite 'Kaddish' in memory of a family member on the anniversary of his/her passing. Kehillat Veahavta's yahrzeit project - 'In Loving Memory' - ​​ will send a reminder to you and/or an invitation to come to the synagogue to recite Kaddish on the Shabbat of the yahrzeit of your loved one. Shlomo and Sharona Maital, members of Kehillat Veahavta, voluntarily coordinate this wonderful, meaningful project.  


1. The reminder in no way obligates anybody to come to the synagogue to recite Kaddish. 

 2. If you are not sure how to say kaddish or what to do - that's what we're here for. During services on Shabbat, we announce when it's time to recite Kaddish, and we always have someone to saying kaddish on any given week. You can say it in a whisper, if you prefer not to recite out loud. In addition, towards the anniversary of a yahrtzeit, we can send you the written text and a recording of Kaddish recitation.

 3. If you have a yahrtzeit but cannot get to services that Shabbat, and you would like someone else to recite Kaddish for you, that is also possible. Every Friday night and Shabbat morning we read aloud the names of all those who had yahrtzeits during the past week. 

If you wish to receive a reminder about a yahrtzeit, please email the office:

3. And it is also possible to do the Shabbat morning Kiddush in their memory.


To discuss any of these options, please send an email to 



We hope you will find this service helpful in bringing your loved ones closer to your hearts.
