Most importantly, as marketed, the book really is a source guide.

The author has done a truly masterful job marshalling the various sources on Kaddish- both medieval and modern. Additionally, the author has introduced an important critical voice to the discussion by her treatment of the major modern positions. Absolutely unparalleled in its comprehensiveness and keen analysis.

As someone who has been contemplating saying kaddish for my ailing parents for some time, this book was very helpful to me in making my decision to go ahead and do it. The sources are set out in a clear and comprehensible way and more than once the book has helped me face inevitable male opposition. Definitely 5 stars.

I have a friend who is a sixth sister with no brothers. This book was a source of tremendous strength and comfort when her mother recently died. I had the opportunity to see her sisters and brothers-in-law reference this book, understand, and respect my friend's decision to say kaddish for her mom in a new way.

This book provides desperately needed guidance on an emotionally sensitive issue. And it does so in a wonderfully accessible way. Readers unfamiliar with traditional Jewish learning will find this study guide a welcome entrance point. The book provides sources in the original Hebrew side by side with readable English translations, dates, and explanations for the beginner. Conversely, scholars will be pleased by the level of the discourse, the fine Hebrew footnotes, and the range of sources presented from across the spectrum.

Most importantly, as marketed, the book really is a source guide. Rather than summarize the sources according to the author's predisposed Orthodox feminist perspective, she cites the sources in full so that the reader can learn the sources herself and come to her own independent conclusions.

Readers looking to justify their decision to say kaddish for a loved one will certainly find support for the decision generally, as well as sources to help them with the complex details of how: in the home vs. synagogue, out loud vs. quietly, alone or only when accompanied by a man, etc. Rabbis and scholars interested in a less biased study will find the neat collection of the full range of sources an invaluable study aid.
