Is the Av HaRachamim that is said after Yizkor part of the Yizkor service and only said by those who said Yizkor or is it part of the regular Tefila to be said by all? (sources)

  • What's a "Yizkor service"?

Chabad on line says that the entire Congregation, even those that do not say Yizkor, say Av Harachamim.

  • That source is a bit ambiguous. All it really says is that someone within the first year who is staying in shul anyway, says the Av Harachamim even though they didn't say Yizkor.
