We treated the date of March 25th, as a special yurtzeit; that is as the yearly anniversary of death. Since we are an Orthodox Shul, we wanted to mark it in a traditional Eastern European way that would have been expected on the anniversary of someone’s death. This is an important part of mourning for the dead, much like a proper funeral. Out of respect, we chose to do it on the American calendar rather than the Hebrew calendar since we knew that others would be mourning on that day.
