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.

We're so sorry!

Starting in March, textback users will be asked to pay a small fee for a full year of texts.

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 providing textbacks for free.
