We understand the importance of honoring and remembering loved ones who have passed away, and we are proud to offer Yahrzeit services to our community.

Yahrzeit, a Yiddish word meaning "time of year," is a time to commemorate the anniversary of a loved one's passing. It is a solemn and sacred occasion when we gather together to honor their memory, reflect on their impact in our lives, and find solace in the warmth of our community.


Yahrtzeit at Ohel Leah


At Ohel Leah Synagogue, we believe that Yahrzeit is not just a time of  remember our beloved ones who are no longer with us, but also an opportunity for healing and growth. We offer a range of services and resources to support you during this time, ensuring that you have a space to remember, grieve, and find comfort.

Our Yahrzeit services are thoughtfully designed to provide a meaningful experience for you and your family. Led by our compassionate and knowledgeable clergy, these services encompass both traditional rituals and modern expressions of remembrance. Through prayer, reflection, and communal support, we aim to create a sacred atmosphere where you can honor your loved one's memory and find solace in the presence of others who share your journey.


During Yahrzeit services, we offer special prayers and readings that focus on themes of remembrance, gratitude, and hope. These are designed to guide you through the mourning process and offer a sense of peace and healing. Our rabbi will lead you through the service, providing explanations and offering guidance as needed. We honor the diversity of our community, and our services are inclusive and accessible to people of all backgrounds and levels of observance.

In addition to our Yahrzeit services, we provide various resources to support you in your grieving process. Our synagogue's library houses a collection of books and literature on grief, loss, and healing, which you are welcome to borrow. We also organize support groups and workshops facilitated by trained professionals, where you can find solace and connect with others who are experiencing similar emotions. These gatherings provide a safe and nurturing environment for sharing stories, memories, and coping strategies.

Whether you are observing the anniversary of a loved one's passing or seeking solace in the companionship of others, our synagogue is here for you. Together, we can find strength and healing as we remember and honor those who have touched our lives.
