The Daily Email will rest, and Kevin will pray.
You are welcome to join me as I offer peace and comfort to the families of those who have perished even as their faith is tested by loss.
Mourner’s Kaddish: a Jewish prayer that honors the memory of a loved one:
Uv’hayei d’chol beit yisrael
Ba-agala u-vi-z’man kariv
Y’hei sh’mei raba m’varach l’alam u-l’almei almaya.
L’ela min kol birchata v’shirata
Y’hei sh’lama raba min sh’maya
V’hayim, aleinu v’al kol yisrael
Oseh shalom bi-m’romav
Hu ya’aseh shalom
Aleinu v’al kol yisrael
