ח׳ בשבט ה׳תשע״ה (January 28, 2015)
Kaddish is a traditional Jewish prayer that is said daily with a quorum of at least ten Jewish males who are over the age of thirteen. The word Kaddish means sanctification, and the prayer is a sanctification of G-d’s name. The mourner stands and says the Kaddish while the quorum responds in unison with the appropriate phrase .
The Kaddish is said from the day of burial, daily for the first eleven months, and on the anniversary of the death.
The recitation of the Kaddish is one of the primary ritual observances of Jewish mourning practice, and is recited by mourners during each of the three daily services in the synagogue.
