Yahrzeit – Annual Reminders

Or Shalom has created a yahrzeit database, and can send Or Shalom members and your family annual reminders of the anniversary of your loved ones’ passing.

To add a name to the Or Shalom Yahrzeit database, you will need the following information, then fill out the form below.

  • Deceased persons full English name (Given, middle and last names)
  • Full Hebrew name (including name of mother and father if appropriate)
  • Their relationship to you
  • The calendar date and year of their death. Also include whether this was before or after sunset.

Or Shalom will track the data in the Hebrew calendar and send a reminder 1-4 weeks ahead of your yahrzeit date.

  • Yahrzeit reminder services are only available to commemorants who are members of Or Shalom. Yahrzeit letters are sent to the mailing address registered with your membership. If you need to check or update it please contact the Or Shalom office.
  • Their Hebrew given name and father and mother's name.
  • This field can only accept English dates. If you need to convert from a Hebrew date, use hebcal.com
  • Yahrzeit date is the next calendar day if the person passed away after sunset.
