Doing Kaddish

By Anne Brener

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2003

The author, a psychotherapist, asserts that while the words of kaddish and the kaddish minyan provide the fixed choreography of the mourner's prayer, the kaddish is much more than can be perceived from the outside. She describes her own writing on death as well as some of the pioneering literature on Jewish approaches to death and mourning.
