Inclusion: Yartzheit, 2017

Inclusion: Yartzheit, 2017 [1]

by Rabbi Corinne Copnick

a beautiful body is a lovely thing

an admirable value my sister didn’t

have a beautiful body she felt

left out I know what it did

to my sister inside b’ahavah

[1] On the Hebrew anniversary of the loved one’s death (the Yartzheit), special prayers are recited in the synagogue. Traditionally a memorial candle is lit in remembrance.
