Yizkor

Yizkor means remember, and it is at this time that we pray for the ones who we have lost.

A prayer is recited as part of the service during Jewish Holidays four times during the year:

  • Yom Kippur
  • 8th day of Passover
  • 2nd day of Shavuot
  • Shemini Atzeret

One of the most sacred acts Judaism is the observance of Yizkor. Sayings of the Fathers (Pirke Avout), as well as the Talmud speak of the Jewish belief in the eternity of the soul. Additionally it is believed that praying for a departed soul provides great benefit to the souls of the living.
