    When my mother, Shulamit E. Kustanowitz, died in May 2011, the in-person Jewish community provided all the basics — post-shivah meals, abundant hugs and three places to say Kaddish: Temple Beth Am for daily minyan, Friday nights at IKAR and Shabbat mornings at B’nai David-Judea....

  • Reflections on the first mourner’s daddish in honor of Memorial Day

    May 23, 2013 | 9:16 am

    Kaddish - The origins of this most famous Jewish prayer are shrouded in history.  Most agree that it began with the central words, “Y’hei Sh’mei Rabbah Mevorach L’Olam u’l’Almei Almaya,” or “May God’s Name be praised now and forever.” One source suggests that the Kaddish was...

  • Saying ‘Allen Ginsberg’s Kaddish’ at UCLA

    April 10, 2013 | 7:21 am

    For most Jews, the word Kaddish evokes images of loss, mourning, death. But for Hal Willner, “Kaddish” is a spoken-word piece — some would call it poetry — by Allen Ginsberg that evokes a very different image: family.

    Willner, a record and concert producer, and the music...

    By Rob Eshman

    June 26, 2008 | 11:31 am

    Everybody keeps asking me whether George Carlin was Jewish.

    "I heard he was related to the Karlin-Stoliner rebbe," a colleague said about the comedian who died this week at the age of 71.

    No, not unless the Karlin-Stoliner rebbe's family was really Irish and Catholic.

    Since childhood my father had always introduced me as his "Kaddish." It wasn't until my teens that I realized the implication of that honor. Upon his death 53 years ago, I went to a local synagogue morning and night for 11 months. It was a tiny shul near the intersection of La...
