Yahrzeit Candle and Yizkor Services

The times for lighting a Yahrtzeit candle, coinciding with Yizkor at services, are as follows:

Erev Yom Kippur

Erev the Seventh Day of Pesach*

Erev Shavu’ot*

Erev Shemini Atzeret.*

*Those who observe a Second Festival Day (Or Shalom does not) light the following night.

(when any of these occurs on Saturday night, we must wait until after nightfall before lighting)
