Hadassah

Perpetual Yahrzeit Program: Remembering Your Loved Ones

The words of the Mourner’s Kaddish have comforted Jews throughout the centuries. We recite it to honor loved ones who once filled our lives, and are now departed. You can ensure that Kaddish will be said in Israel for your family member(s) in perpetuity, under Marc Chagall’s breathtaking stained glass windows depicting the 12 tribes of Israel. You can also arrange an Advance Yahrzeit for yourself or a loved one, providing peace of mind for you and easing the burden on your family.

Perpetual Yahrzeit

Hadassah’s Perpetual Yahrzeit ensures that Kaddish will be recited every year on the anniversary of your loved one’s passing. On that day, the name of the departed, and the comforting words of Kaddish, will be recited in the Fannie and Maxwell Abbell Synagogue at Hadassah Ein Kerem, Jerusalem, home to Marc Chagall's iconic windows.

Your one-time $1,000 donation will support healing, teaching and medical research at Hadassah Medical Organization.

Enhanced Perpetual Yahrzeit

Kaddish will be recited for your loved one daily for 11 months, after which it will be recited annually. Like the Perpetual Yahrzeit, Kaddish is said in the Abbell Synagogue, surrounded by the windows that Marc Chagall gave to the people of Jerusalem in 1962. Each year you will receive a reminder prior to the Yahrzeit date.

Your one-time $5,000 donation honors your loved one with a life-affirming gift in their memory.
