Remembering family and friends is one of the most sacred acts in our tradition. At Temple Sholom, we encourage our members to let us know the names and the dates of passing of family members and friends so that we might commemorate them each year on the anniversary of their passing (known as the Yahrzeit date). We will honor their memory by reading their name during Friday night services on the Shabbat closest to the anniversary date.

Traditionally, a Yahrzeit candle is lit in their memory at sundown on their Yahrzeit date. Yahrzeit candles are designed to burn for 24 hours, and can be found at many major grocery stores or are available in the Temple office.

Please contact Becky Krangel to add a name to our Yahrzeit list by email or by phone (610) 356-5165.
