If you read my blog earlier this week, you know that my sister-in-law, Beth, passed away suddenly. On Monday, we attended her funeral and burial. Beth was Jewish and both the funeral and burial were on the same day. While we were at the graveside, the rabbi recited The Mourner’s Kaddish.
When I was home, I looked up this prayer and loved the words. They were such a comfort to me.
This prayer is said for those who have passed on, however, it makes no mention of death, loss or mourning. There is no mention of the person who died. Kaddish speaks of God’s greatness. In fact, it is an affirmation of belief in the Almighty and His unlimited power.
