For 17 years, we’ve provided zmanim texts FREE for Yidden across the world — and that makes us happy!

Due to ever-rising costs of commercial texting (as well as the service's booming popularity!), we are no longer able to continue offering this as a free service.

(Unlimited texting plans for commercial use do not exist.)

We're so sorry!

As of March 2023, there is a fee for using MyZmanim Textback.

If you don't want to pay, you can still get zmanim FREE by calling our Infoline, by visiting our website, or by launching our mobile app — anytime.

Again — we're sorry we can't continue offering this as a free service.
