The Kaddish has long been considered to be a special prayer for the dead. It isn't. Those who recite the prayer faithfully for fifty-two Friday nights after the death of a loved one may wonder why there is no place for the name of the deceased in the prayer. This book contains much new information on the Kaddish, including how it was created during the Crusades as an homage to God.
