Your dear ones have moved onto the World on High, and you want to benefit
their souls, and raise them to a higher level in the Next World. There, in the
World of Truth, they are waiting for these merits and want to climb from one level
to the next, to a better place.
In Agudas Achim Anshei America, important G-d fearing Torah scholars will learn
Torah for the soul’s elevation, say Kaddish and chapters of Psalms at their grave,
learn mishnayos for the benefit of the soul, come with a minyan on the yartzheit
[anniversary of the person’s death] with refreshments and blessings and light a
yartzheit candle, hold a tikkun [rectification ceremony] for the elevation of his soul,
and will elevate their soul to a higher place in the World on High.
This is the best thing you can do for them – They are waiting for it!
