Why isn't Jeremiah Jakobson's Yahrzeit Exact?

We do not know the exact date of death of Jeremiah Jakobson. According to Jewish tradition, if the exact date of death is not known, the yahrzeit of a person can be observed on any day, as long as it is that same day every year. Since that is the case, we observe the yahrzeit of Jeremiah Jakobson on 5 Kislev. If you know the exact date of death of Jeremiah Jakobson, contact us via the contact page.
