Saying name at Yizkor

Question:

Dear Rabbi. When saying the name of the deceased at yizkor and the relative was a Cohen/levi, does one add hlevi to the name or is just used for having an aliyah?

 

Answer:

The name “Hakohen” of “Halevi” is added in when saying yizkor etc.. It is also engraved on the person’s tombstone.

Best wishes
