Kel Maleh Rachamim


I know it is unusual to do so, but is there any halachic prohibition or even minhag against having the El Rachamim prayer recited for a deceased family member on what would have been his birthday, and not just on his yahrzeit? Thank you!



  1. I am not aware of any problem with reciting it on the deceased birthday. As you write, it is certainly unusual!
