Plant a Tree in Israel


Planting a Tree in Israel 'in memory' of a loved one is a traditional way to honor the memory of your loved ones during Yahrzeit and Yizkor dates. Trees are planted for all occasions and holidays as well.

  Yahrzeit Candles


It is a Jewish custom to light a special candle five times each year to commemorate loved ones. On the Yahrzeit and before four holidays (Yizkor dates), a candle is lit at sundown and will burn for a full 24 hours before extinguishing itself.

  Jesusalem Stones


The act of placing a stone by the graveside of the departed is an age-old Jewish tradition that pays appropriate homage to the concrete loss of a loved one. By placing a small piece of Israel aside the burial place when visiting the cemetery a deep spiritual and physical connection to the land of Israel can be made.
