The anniversary of a death in Judaism is observed annually and is referred to as the Yahrzeit. Traditionally a Yahrzeit candle is lit at sunset on the preceding day and concludes at sunset on the anniversary day of the death. Those observing Yahrzeit recite the Kaddish prayer in Synagogue during services. Your synagogue may be able to notify you in advance of the Yahrzeit of a loved one.
