The Illuminated Kaddish:
Interpretations of the Mourner's Prayer
Hyla Shifra Bolsta
The Illuminated Kaddish breathes new life into the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer of mourning, universally recognized, loved and recited all over the world. It is a contemporary illuminated manuscript, the artist/author's personal interpretation (or midrash) expressed in poetic text and lavish artwork. The book explores the prayer's profound ideas and opens new horizons on the themes of gratitude and paying tribute to life.
The Illuminated Kaddish is a modern meditation that offers a treasured opportunity to slow down and open the gates to reflection, understanding and contemplation. Its familiar cadence comforts mourners who feel an attachment to it, as if it were in their genes, without understanding the wisdom of its words. The book benefits mourners, family and friends, who look for solace and inspiration at this poignant time. It will continue to comfort and uplift spirits.
The Illuminated Kaddish is not only for mourners. For readers who want to understand the Kaddish in the context of centuries-old Jewish tradition, this book revitalizes its meaning and relevance to contemporary thought.
