It is customary that the mourner lead the prayer services if he can. This increases the merit of the deceased. Generally the prayer services are performed in the place of shiva. It is important for friends and neighbors to help maintain this minyan.

At the very minimum the mourners say kaddish. The recitation of the kaddish prayer is the central to the mourning observances. The kaddish prayer comes in five forms:

Half kaddish which is used to mark a transition from one part of the prayer service to the next. This kaddish is said only by the chazon.

Complete kaddish which is used to mark the termination of a major portion of the prayer service and contains the titkabel, requesting God's acceptance of our prayer. This also is only said by the chazon.

The Rabbi's kaddish is said after reciting a bit of learning from the Talmud or Medrash. It is a prayer that requests God to help those who learn Torah. This is said by mourners.

Mourner's kaddish which is recited only by mourners. This follows selected prayers that are recited daily and listed in the prayer books.

Burial kaddish which is recited only at the grave site by the mourner.

Kaddish may only be said in the presence of ten male adult Jews, the mourner being included in the ten. Women do not say kaddish. If there are no male mourners, somebody else is asked or hired to say mourners Kaddish.


The Yahrzeit means the anniversary of the day of death on which special observances are preformed. In the past it was observed by fasting, but today it is the custom to give donations to the poor and many provide food (liquor and cake) to the synagogue for those who pray there.

The day of the Yahrzeit is always the Hebrew date of death. Even in a leap year, where there are thirteen months and kaddish is recited for only eleven months, and the yearly observance ends after twelve months, the Yahrzeit is observed on the exact Hebrew date of death.

On the Sabbath before the Yahrzeit, it is customary to inform the gabbai of the synagogue of the upcoming Yahrzeit observance. The gabbai will then provide an aliyah to the Torah for the person observing the yartziet.

It is customary to lead the prayer service on the day of the Yahrzeit, but if the person is incapable of this, he must say the various kaddishs which are part of the prayer services. This applies beginning from the evening service (maariv) and extends through the morning service (shacharit) and concludes with the afternoon service (mincha).

The Yahrzeit is not only observed for the parents, but also the other relatives for whom one is obligated to mourn.

As with yizkor, it is customary to light a Yahrzeit candle in the home on the eve of the day of the Yahrzeit to commemorate the death of the departed. It is customary to donate money to promote Torah studies and it is also customary that extra learning be done on this day in the name of the deceased to increase his merit.

It is also customary to visit the grave site on the day of the Yahrzeit. At the grave Psalms and special prayers which are found in many Prayer Books are said. It is also customary to learn mishna.


Yizkor is the memorial prayer which recalls the deceased and is recited on the three major holidays, Passover (on the last day), Shavuot (on the second day) and Succot (on Shmeni Atzeret) and also on Yom Kippur. It is recited in the synagogue after the reading of the Torah.

Yizkor is normally begun to be said on the first holiday after the death.

It is customary to light a Yahrzeit candle (a candle that will burn for 24 hours) in the house on the eve of the holiday to commemorate the death of the departed. In many synagogues, an electric candle is lit instead of a wax candle to commemorate the Yahrzeit or Yizkor.
