Observing a Yartzeit

Observing a Yartzeit

We have several different opportunities for you to observe a yahrzeit, the anniversary of the death of a parent, spouse, or child. The primary way is by attending Monday, Wednesday, or Shabbat morning services in order to recite Kaddish Yatom, Mourner’s Kaddish. We have services most Monday and Wednesday mornings, in addition to Shabbat morning; please call the office to make sure that minyan is meeting on the day(s) you wish to attend. The names of those whose yahrzeiten are being observed during a given week are read before Mourner’s Kaddish during Shabbat morning services.

We invite you to be called up to the Torah for an aliyah, to recite the blessings over Torah reading and receive a special mi shebeirach blessing for yourself, if you are observing a yahrzeit. Contact Roger Antebi, Head Parnass, to alert him that you would like to receive an aliyah, at antebi@videotron.ca.

You may also make a donation to the synagogue in honour of a loved one’s yahrzeit or establish a memorial plaque for them in the sanctuary. Please contact the office for more information regarding memorial plaques.
