Why isn't Israel Sawitzky's Yahrzeit Exact?

We do not know the exact date of death of Israel Sawitzky. 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 Israel Sawitzky on 9 Tammuz. If you know the exact date of death of Israel Sawitzky, contact us via the contact page.
