A Daughter’s Kaddish

Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History

To honor her beloved father Sarah Birnbach committed to reciting the Mourner’s Kaddish twice a day for eleven months — a Jewish mourning ritual that was historically reserved for sons — despite her father’s initial request that she hire someone male to do so. The novice worshipper and single working mother had many obstacles — objections to her prayer practice because of her gender, her own daughter’s near-fatal car accident, an incident that tore her synagogue apart, finding a synagogue in every city and town she visited for her work and her mother’s dismissiveness. Discover her story.
