For 5 years, we've provided zmanim texts for people in Israel — and that makes us happy!

During this time, we found that people in Israel rarely use this service — and we need to allocate our limited resources to providing services that are most used.

As of March 2023, MyZmanim Textback is no longer offered in Israel.

We're so sorry!

If you have access to American, British, or Canadian mobile phone number, you may continue using the service from that number.

Also, you can always get zmanim by calling our Infoline, by visiting our website, or by launching our mobile app — anytime.

Again — we're sorry we can't continue providing textbacks in Israel.
