The community of Lemah Kembar Village has a form of local wisdom preserved in fostering relationships, not only about the living but also about people who have passed away through shadaqah jariyah. One way of the cultural wisdom is the rebbe ritual done by the Probolinggo community, which is seen as alms from living families to relatives who have passed away. This study focused on exploring community interpretations and the historical social construction of rebbe ritual in interpreting the meaning of shadaqah jariyah in the community of Lemah Kembar village, Sumberasih district, Probolinggo. The results revealed that the historical social construction of rebbe ritual emerged from the differences of community’s understanding about the shadaqah jariyah, which were grouped into three, namely the group of people who believed in rewarding the deceased, the students who carried out the tradition but interpreted it differently, and the students who refused to do the tradition because such rituals were considered contrary to Islamic teachings.
