• I asked and answered in English this question, which had been originally asked in Spanish: "English abbreviation: Z"L or O.B.M. Hebrew abbreviation: ז״ל Full phrase in Hebrew - For a man: זיכרונו לברכה zikhrono livrakha - For a woman: זיכרונה לברכה zikhronah livrakha English translation: of blessed memory; or may his/her memory be for blessing When used: non-rabbinical figure" Source and further information:"l
  • Z"L stands for Zichrono/a Livracha, meaning may his/ her memory be a blessing. A righteous person will have the appelate ZT"L, which stands for Zecher Tzadik livracha, may his/ her memory as a righteous individual be a blessing.
