Yizkor

  • Yizkor, the memorial prayer for departed loved ones, is said four times a year: The eighth day of Passover, the second day of Shavuot, Yom Kippur, and Shemini Atzeret.

    In Israel, where the holiday calendar is somewhat different, we say Yizkor on: The 7th day of Passover, Shavuot (there is only one day), Yom Kippur and Simchat Torah (which is combined with Shemini Atzeret).

    The text of the prayer asks G‑d that the souls of our loved be "bound up in the bond of life with the souls of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, and with the other righteous men and women who are in Gan Eden" in merit of the charity that we give in their honor.

    Yizkor is recited at synagogue during the morning services after Torah reading. In many communities, those whose parents are still alive leave the sanctuary for the duration of this short service.
