The "Yahrzeit Search" is the recommended means of:

  • Finding/listing mourners observing yahrzeits during various date ranges
  • Creating various CRM smart groups
  • Sending emails to mourners, such as to let them know about their upcoming yahrzeits
  • Sending hard-copy reminder letters to the mourners
  • Creating hard-copy lists of deceased names, mourner names to be read aloud during services
  • Creating hard-copy weekly lists of deceased names for a volunteer to turn on/off light bulbs next to memorial plaques

Click on "Insert Tokens" then scroll until you see the section "Yahrzeits for this Mourner".
