We tradionally observe yahrzeit on the anniversary of a loved one’s death by lighting a candle and reciting the Mourner’s Kaddish. In addition this Temple keeps registeries of the Hebrew dates of members’ deaths. Another tradition is to make a donation in honor of a person’s yahrzeit. If you are interested in making this kind of donation, please click here or contact Suzanne Utley by phone at 216-831-3233, extension 105 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further donation options.
