If you clicked here, you may have recently suffered the unfortunate loss of a family member. Or you may be marking a Yahrtzeit, the anniversary of your loved one's passing. Either way, reciting Kaddish is one of the greatest gifts you can give your loved one. You may discover it also to be integral to your mourning and healing process.

However, saying Kaddish can be daunting, for those experiencing a loss for the first time and have not had to say Kaddish before.

Kaddish Assistant helps you learn how to say Kaddish at your own pace and in your own tradition. Read along as each word of the Kaddish is recited and highlighted. Learn how to properly pronounce each word, using either Hebrew or transliteration. And understand what each word means with integrated translations.

Kaddish Assistant helps with the following:

· Read-along and learn to say Kaddish at your own pace.

· Select from three traditions including: Ashkenazic, Sephardic and Chabad.

· Use the built-in Yahtzheit calculator to determine when to say Kaddish.

· Use the “My Yahtzheits” feature to save key family Yahrtzeit dates and be notified before upcoming Yahrtzeits.

· Notify friends and loved ones when and where you will be saying Kaddish so they can join you and help you make a minyan.

· Kaddish quick tips and articles help demystify this spiritual prayer.

· Request that Kaddish be recited in Israel.

· And more…

The app is available with multilingual support, including the following languages: English, Hebrew, French, Spanish, Russian, German, Italian and Portuguese.

Decent but calculates wrong gregorian date

It is a good app for the most part but when inputting some yartzeit dates it calculates the wrong gregorian date that isn’t even accurate for the hebrew date! A date that should have been in November is calculated to be in February.

The app is not functional

It’s not working. I put in the date and information and the app locked up several times. Please fix this ASAP. Thank you.

Great for beginners

A great app to help learn the Kaddish, especially for those of us who don't read Hebrew.
