Q & AAsk the Rabbi your questions about davening



My mother died & my by brothers aren’t observant
so there is no one to say Kaddish for her.  What can I do?


My brother says Kaddish for our father in his shul 
But I’d like to say it also.  Can I?


Could I say the Kaddish in English if I don't know Hebrew?


It's tough to keep up with the men when they say kaddish.
Is it ok if I finish a couple minutes after they're done?


If I don't have to say Kaddish & I’m trying to catch up with davening
do I have to answer to Kaddish?


I've been saying Kaddish quietly along with the men for my mother.
I take the 3 steps back & bow at the end like we do in Shemoneh Esrei.
Should I have my feet together from the start of the Kaddish?


Do I stop staying Kaddish the hebrew date of the death
or the hebrew date of the funeral?
