I will recite the
Jewish Kaddish Prayer in an Orthodox synagogue, in memory of your deceased
The Kaddish is one of the most important and central elements in the Jewish liturgy. Kaddish cannot be recited alone. Along with some prayers, it can only be recited with a minyan of ten Jews.
The main idea behind the recital of Kaddish is for the merit of a departed soul. While Kaddish is commonly known as the "mourner’s prayer," a reading of the text reveals that it is not about death or mourning, but the public proclamation of G‑d's greatness. By rising from the depths of anguish and loss to offer praise to G‑d, we transform the event of death into an act of life.
It is important to note that the Mourner's Kaddish does not mention death at all, but instead praises God. Though the Kaddish is often popularly referred to as the "Jewish Prayer for the Dead," that designation more accurately belongs to the prayer called "El male rachamim", which specifically prays for the soul of the deceased.
Mourners say Kaddish to show that despite the loss they still praise God. (wikipedia) It is a way for the children to help their parents or loved ones onto their last journey. (Chabbad.org)
Mourner's Kaddish is said at all prayer services. It is written in Aramaic and is recited several times, most prominently towards the end of services. Following the death of a parent, child, spouse, or sibling it is customary to recite the Mourner's Kaddish in the presence of a congregation.
The anniversary of the date of passing is very significant in Judaism. Kabbalah teaches that all the spiritual achievements of one's life, including every positive thought, word, or deed, radiate and are revealed in the world and in the Heavens on that day.
It is customary to light a Yarzeit Candle on this special day. Usually, these candle are manufactured to burn for 26 hours.
The Kaddish will be recited in an Orthodox synagogue in Canada in the presence of a minyan (10 adults).
