Yahrzeit: Timing

If the person was buried before the passage of two sunsets after death:
  • Yahrzeit day is the anniversary date of the day he or she died.
If the person was NOT buried before the passage of two sunsets after death:
  • First yahrzeit is one year after the day he/she was buried.
  • Subsequent yahrzeits will be on the day he/she died.
