Yahrzeit

Mourner’s Kaddish

Kaddish is a tremendous merit and source of elevation for the soul

One of the most sacred rituals observed by all Jews throughout the generations is the practice of reciting the Kaddish prayer for those who have passed on.
Kaddish is customary recited for eleven months after death, and thereafter, each year on the yahrzeit (anniversary) of the passing. It is a tremendous merit and source of elevation for the soul.
The ideal preference is that the children of the deceased recite Kaddish for their parents, for the first eleven months after the passing. When this is not possible or as a supplement or safeguard to that, another person can be hired to do so. Contact the Rabbi to discuss this. One time-honoured custom is to donate money to a charity in memory of the deceased.
Below is the Kaddish prayer for you to recite with a podcast of the Kaddish:
