Kaddish What if, heaven forbid, one looses 1 parent and before the year is over looses the other. Do you then say Kaddish twice in the morning, twice midday and twice in the evening? Reply

in response to Evelyne-Valerie D'Arnal:

WoW. It would be difficult to attend 2 of each Davening, Shahris, Mincha, Maariv saying Kaddish at each of these 6 Davenings per day. It's hard enough attending the 3 davenings per day. So, I assume you strive to make the 3 davenings per day and have the 2 parents in mind with each Kaddish. Reply
