Answer

Yes and no. Yes, if you enter this year into the form you will get a perpetual calendar based on those dates. However, you may inadvertently create an inaccurate calendar!


The rules for calculating birthdays and yahrzeits are a bit complicated and depend on the actual attributes of the Hebrew year they occurred in (was it a leap year? Short Kislev? Long Cheshvan?). It's unlikely that this year matches the form of the year the birth or death occurred.

This is why we recommend you put in the actual date of the birth or death (e.g. original year) and not the current year.

Never mind. I realized I can put in this year's ENglish date, correct?

Thank you so much. Is there a way to just put in the Hebrew date? Otherwise I have to go back and figure out the Hebrew year for each yahrzeit to get the correct English date

Can I generate a PDF file instead of a calendar of Yahrzeit dates?

We don't offer a PDF file but you can easily print-to-PDF from your web browser.

For example, try printing this sample Yahrzeit calendar and you'll see:
