Join a Daily Online Kaddish Minyan with MJL

Each weekday afternoon we will be hosting a live Torah lesson followed by the Mourner's Kaddish.

My Jewish Learning hosts an online minyan Sunday-Friday for those who wish to say Kaddish. The minyan is held every Monday-Friday at 4:00 PM U.S. Eastern time (2:00 PM on Fridays in the winter), and at 10:00 AM U.S. Eastern time on Sundays.

Each session is led by a rabbi who will offer some words of Torah followed by the recitation of the Mourner’s Kaddish in the presence of an online minyan.
