Birthdays in the Afterlife: Are anniversaries of birth relevant and meaningful after death?

We’ve previously established that birthday observances and even celebrations are Torah truisms. Now we explore: do birthdates retain Torah meaning after one's terrestrial passing onto their eternal reward. Intuitively, the start of one's physical life should end when the body is laid to rest; yet perhaps the day the soul occupies its destined corporeal reality continues to resonate even after the spirit separates and leaves its material envelope behind. This nuanced thesis – Halachicly buttressed – conclusively demonstrates that this day’s potency continues to resonate for posterity.
