So beautiful

and meaningful. So proud to be Jewish. I hear people complain that Judiasm requires so much from us - laws, expectaions, etc. I tell them that's what makes us who we are - compassionate, goal oriented in that we are striving to make the world a better place by living a Torah life. Torah teaches us how" to be" - loving, caring, compassionate, remembering and being forever grateful.

Thank you...

Mr. Harary and you for this wonderful video! You not only explained the meaning behind saying this beautiful prayer...but, brought me much happiness as well. It is approaching the one year anniversary of the loss of my beloved David, may his memory be for a blessing, and knowing what I know now will bless both of our souls with happiness. Thank you again...Shalom!

I've always wonder why we say Kaddish. I've said it tens of thousands but never really understood what or why I was saying it. Now it makes perfect sense. Again, thanks.

Very helpful teaching!

Lost my beloved father this year. This explanation will help me do a better job of saying Kaddish. And I feel closer to my father knowing that this prayer is a project that we are doing together. That made me smile.
