Jewish people place great value on the customs and traditional practices relating to remembrance. Observances such as Yahrzeit, Kaddish and Yizkor have, for centuries, linked each generation with those that have gone before, and bound the Jewish people with their history.
As part of its commitment to the preservation of Jewish heritage, World ORT is proud to provide the worldwide community with this Yahrzeit reminder service and Memorial website.
