Yizkor for Irreligious Parents


Is it problematic at all in Halacha with Jews reciting yizkor prayers for non observant parents who have died? Or no, even if they weren’t particularly observant or religious is it still preferable to say after they’ve passed?



  1. It is absolutely correct to recite Yizkor for irreligious parents who have passed away. The prayers will help to elevate their souls.
