Photograph of a yahrzeit lamp on a table. The lamp probably belonged to the family of Julius L. Meier, who served as governor of Oregon from 1931 to 1935. A yahrzeit lamp is part of the Jewish observance of the anniversary of a loved one’s death. Each year, the lamp is lit in commemoration on the day of the anniversary. Also see image No. 371N4255. Image note: Photograph shows discoloration due to deterioration of the negative.
