The anniversary of a loved ones passing in Jewish tradition is called a Yahrtzeit. It's observed each year on the Hebrew date of passing by reciting the Kaddish during a communal prayer service and by lighting a 24 hour memorial candle at home in memory of your loved one.


Kaddish is a bond which unites the Jewish generations from time immemorial, and unto eternity. Kaddish is the way we show our respect for our parents and the way they showed their love and respect for their parents.

Chabad of Huntsville can help you coordinate a minyan to come together wherein you can come and recite Kaddish.

Additionally, we can help you arrange for Kaddish to be recited in Israel during the traditional eleven months after a parent's parting, and on each Yahrtzeit thereafter.

Please contact Rabbi Moshe directly to make these arrangements: [email protected]  / (256) 886-8245
