Many people wish to honour their loved ones by placing their names on a memorial board that remains fixed on a wall in the Chabad House thereby ensuring everlasting memory.

All plaques purchased will remain on a board in our centre forever and will be lit for the Yahrtzeit, and other days when Yitzkor Memorial Prayers are recited.

Kaddish Dedications

The Yahrtzeit (anniversary of a loved one's passing) is a time to remember the person in the synagogue by reciting the Kaddish prayer, through the giving of extra charity, and through learning. Yartzait candle.JPG

Jewish Law requires that the Kaddish be recited during the first eleven months following the death of a loved one by prescribed mourners, and on each anniversary of the death (the "Yahrtzeit").

The obligation of mourning and Kaddish is primarily on the deceased children, only if there are no children does the obligation of mourning fall on a spouse or closest blood relative.
(contact your local Orthodox Rabbi if you are in doubt regarding who is to mourn.)

In the event that the children are not able to recite Kaddish, it is necessary that they find someone who will recite Kaddish for them.

You can arrange for Kaddish to be said at our synagogue at each of the daily services.
