Yahrzeit is observed on the Shabbat following the anniversary of a person’s passing. For simplicity, I am using the Western calendar rather than Hebrew because that would be too unwieldy for me. See this link.
Yahrtzeit is a Yiddish word that means “anniversary,” and is used specifically to refer to the day on which a person passed away. On the day of the yahrtzeit, there are various customs one can do to honor the memory of the departed. As with kaddish and yizkor, the observance of the yahrtzeit, particularly for parents, has the ability to bring great benefit and merit to the soul of the departed.
This calendar first displays the current date regardless of the page you are viewing but it can be rolled forward to a date in which you are interested.
