kel moleh rachamim

Question:

When making reference to the nifter during keil malei rachamim is it ploni ben/bas mother or father?

Answer:

Thank you for your question.

The Ashkenazi minhag (including chassidim) is to use the father’s name, and the Sefardic minhag is to use the mothers name.

Best wishes
