What is Kaddish?
Kaddish is a prayer which is said to elevate the soul throughout the spiritual worlds in accompaniment to Gan eden (paradise).
How long is one obligated to recite the Kaddish?
The Kaddish must be recited before a quorum (Minyan) of ten adults, three times a day, during the Shacharit (morning service), Mincha (afternoon service) and Arvit (evening service).
In the event of the passing of other family members, Kaddish should be recited for the period of thirty days.
Who is responsible to recite the Kaddish?
If the sons are unable to recite the Kaddish themselves, or in a case that there are no surviving sons, then the surviving family is obligated to insure the kaddish is recited during the three daily services, throughout the obligatory period. It’s customary to hire an individual who can replace you for the kaddish responsibility.
