Kaddish Service

We Can Recite Kaddish for Your Loved One.

To arrange Kaddish Service Call: (347) 934-9974 or Fill out form on the bottom of this page.

Kollel Shoroshim can arrange for Kaddish to be recited on behalf of your departed loved one, and being that a part of the proceeds will go to the support the Torah learning of the kollel, the soul of your loved one will get a double merit: the merit of the kaddish recitation and the merit of the Torah Study. To arrange the Kaddish service, please fill out the form bellow. The Kaddish recitation will begin shortly after the from is submitted (usually within 24 hours).

What is Kaddish?

Contrary to the common misconception, Kaddish is not a memorial prayer. In fact it has no mention of death, or the soul of the departed, rather it is a prayer for Kiddush Hashem - sanctification of G-d's name, and a fulfillment of the mitzvah of Kiddush Hashem - one of the most fundamental obligations incumbent upon every Jew. Our Sages teach us that the merit of reciting the Kaddish prayer, and causing the congregation to answer its central phrase - "Omein Y'heh Shmey Rabboh mevorach meatoh v'ad oillom" is so great that when it is recited in the merit of a deceased, it can elevate his soul from the Gehinom. This teaching became the basis for the almost universal custom to recite the Kaddish on behalf of the dead for 11 months after the burial and on the Yortzeit.
Who should recite the Kaddish and when?

Ideally, the Kaddish should be recited by the son(s) of the deceased. If the deceased left no male offspring that could recite the Kaddish, the custom is to hire someone else to do this job.
It has become the custom that one whose parents are alive does not recite the Kaddish.
Although the minimal requirement is that Kaddish be recited once a day, the custom is to say it at least three times a day (once in each prayer)
As a "dovor sheb'k'dusha" kaddish has to be recited with a minyan.
