Yahrzeit Candle Holders

The Yahrzeit candle is a candle of remembrance and is lit during a Shiva week (after a funeral), on the occasion of the anniversary of the death of a loved one, on Yom Kippur, and also on the last days of the festivals of Succot, Pesach and Shavuot. The Yahrzeit candle is the “Ner Neshama”, the candle of the soul, and it reminds us of the fragility of life, to be cherished and embraced whilst alive. Many faiths use a candle such as the Yahrzeit candle to symbolise remembering of a life and to honour a departed loved one.
