Death Anniversary Reactions and the Hassidic "Yahrzeit" Observance.
Ribner, David S.
American Journal of Family Therapy, v26 n3 p215-22 Jul-Sep 1998
Examines the use of the Hassidic Yahrzeit observance as a model for new family rituals designed to incorporate repressed material into ongoing memories of deceased loved ones. The observance allows for overt recognition of positive as well as negative recollections and emotions and does so with flexible practices in a fixed time frame. (Author/MKA)
