Re: Anniversary of one death: "Aschava"? #general


"Ashkava" means "burial", literally: laying down (to rest), >from the root
shin kaf bet = to lie down. The Ashkava (or Tfilat Ashkava) is the burial

Subject: Anniversary of one death: "Aschava"?

Dear Genners
I am translating >from Italian into English the will of one of my ancestors
who lived in Trieste, Italy.
Among one of his requests is that the Temple in Ebelsbach, Bavaria, where
he was born should recite the Kaddish and the "Aschava" (?) and lit a candle
in his memory.

I cannot find a suitable translation for the latter prayer, can anyone
help me?
