Yizkor form

  • Yizkor Memorial Prayer

  • Yizkor, a special memorial prayer for the departed, is recited in the synagogue four times a year, following the Torah reading on the last day of Passover, on the second day of Shavuot, on Shemini Atzeret and on Yom Kippur.

    When we recite Yizkor, we renew and strengthen the connection between us and our loved one, bringing merit to the departed souls, elevating them in their celestial homes.

    The main component of Yizkor is our private pledge to give charity in honor of the deceased. By giving charity, we are performing a positive physical deed in this world, something that the departed can no longer do.

    Some kindle a 24-hour Yizkor candle (before the holiday).

    In addition to reciting Yizkor for one's parents, one may recite Yizkor for any Jew who has passed on, including relatives and friends.
