Since my Mother's death three months ago I am feeling sad and depressed. The advice-giving sites say do not repress your sadness and feelings, go give free rein to your melancholy, appoint a day of sadness, dedicated to crying and memories. Ceremonies to symbolize and express one's sadness are proposed.
If I am going to do something like that, I shall follow the ways of my Fathers, of the traditional Jewish rites of saying kaddish for the dead.
May His great name be exalted and sanctified
Yitgaddal veyitqaddash shmeh rabba
You may find me next Friday evening at Kever Benjamin's Grand Synagogue.
