Yarhzeit Calculator

Yahrzeit is the name of the traditional Jewish way to remember someone and means "anniversary" in Yiddish.

On the Jewish calendar, it is the date that someone died one year ago.

However, since the Jewish Calendar is different than the Gregorian Calendar, you need to calculate when the anniversary of the death of a loved one falls on the Jewish calendar.

The Yahrzeit Calculator

We have provided you with a free tool to calculate the anniversary of the death of a loved one on the Jewish calendar.

Traditionally, the annual remembrance of the death of a loved one starts at sunset on the anniversary of the Hebrew date of death.

On the Jewish anniversary of a death, it is traditional to (i) light a yahrzeit candle and (ii) recite the Kaddish prayer.

The Yahrzeit Candle

The Yahrzeit candle is made to stay lit for a full day.  Once lit, you should let these candles burn until they go out on their own.

Even though the ritual is usually done with a real candle, you can use an electric Yahrzeit candle instead to avoid any safety issues.  People often light Yahrzeit candles for close family members who have died, like a parent, spouse, sibling, or child.

You can also light a candle for a boyfriend, girlfriend, grandparent, or close loved one.

Please feel free to use the calculator below to figure out Hebrew birthdays, Hebrew anniversaries, and Yahrzeit dates for the next 20 years.
