Kaddish – The Kaddish is a tremendously powerful prayer and is central to the established prayer services. It is customary to recite it for the merit of the departed, emphasizing God’s exalted greatness and majesty, and acknowledging His absolute dominion over this world and the entire universe. This prayer is a compelling expression of our acknowledgment of the spiritual world, and our acceptance of the soul’s journey there.
Kaddish is recited during the first year, and every year on the yahrtzeit of the departed. In some communities Kaddish is recited through the week of the yahrtzeit. When the relatives of the departed are not able to recite the Kaddish themselves, it is customary for them to hire someone to recite Kaddish on their behalf, as this prayer is greatly beneficial to the soul of the departed.
Diskin’s staff invest themselves heart and soul throughout the year to give orphans and needy children life-giving, nurturing love, care and support. When a family needs someone to recite Kaddish on behalf of relatives who have left this world, it is certainly most appropriate to have those dedicated people who staff Diskin perform the task. They are totally devoted to supporting and building new lives for orphans who have no one else to turn to. The Kaddish will be rendered even more powerful through the strength of their merits.
