Jewish Ritual

Kaddish

The Kaddish prayer is mostly Aramaic, not Hebrew, but the alphabet is the same. There are several forms of the Kaddish prayer recited at different times during religious services. This one is reserved specifically for mourners, and is recited daily for 11 months after a parent's death, then annually on the anniversary of the parent's death on the Hebrew calendar

Congregation Shaarey Zedek has daily minyan services for mourners.  For more information, call CSZ at 248-357-5554.
