Submitted by Rebecca  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The Yizkor memorial candle is traditionally lit before the last day of Yom Tov, April 25th this year. However, it is advisable to light a candle this Friday that will burn more than 24 hours, in order to light from it the Yom Tov candles at the conclusion of Shabbos before the seder.
