What is the Jewish prayer for the dead?
The Jewish prayer that is generally associated with mourning is the "Kaddish" prayer.
Ironically, this prayer's title simply means "holy," and it makes no mention of the dead. In fact, it is recited several times during every daily prayer service, regardless of whether anyone in the congregation is in mourning or is observing the anniversay of the death of a loved one.
