If you are unable to make it to services to say Kaddish for a loved one due to Coronavirus, we’re here to try to ensure that the mourner’s Kaddish will be said in their merit.

We know how important it is to people who are mourning to know that someone is saying Kaddish for their loved one. But we also are mindful that doing so can't come at the expense of putting any individual or the public at a health risk. Therefore, as the coronavirus spread and communities around the world closed synagogues—and rabbis and health officials advised against public gatherings of even ten—we have sought out people around the world to say Kaddish with a minyan where doing so follows the guidelines of all health and rabbinic authorities and does not put anyone at risk. Also be aware that due to the evolving situation internationally, the service may be temporarily suspended without notice. If so, it will be reinstituted as soon as is practicable.

With that in mind, simply fill out the form below, and our volunteers will lovingly help you memorialize your dear departed. Please indicate the date of passing, and whether the Kaddish is for a yahrzeit, or for the year of mourning.

Please note that whenever you have the opportunity to say kaddish with a minyan, even ad-hoc, it is advisable that you do so, and it in no way contradicts the efforts of our volunteers.
