App iZkor brings you the text for the mourning rituals in Judaism that are said in all prayer services as well as at funerals and memorials. Yizkor means “remembrance” in Hebrew.

Yizkor should be recited in a synagogue with a minyan.
It is an custom, primarily in Ashkenazi synagogues,  for those who have both parents living to leave the synagogue during the first part of the Yizkor service. It is believed that their non-participation in Yizkor advocates long life for their living parents.

  1. Yom Kippur
  2. The last day of Sukkot
  3. The last day of Passover
  4. The last day of Shavuot
