Leon Wieseltier, a diligent but doubting son, recites the Jewish prayer of mourning at his fathers grave, and then embarks on the traditional year of saying the kaddishdaily.Wieseltiers highly acclaimed Kaddish is the spiritual and thoughtful journal of one of Americas most brilliant intellectuals. Driven to explore th origins of the kaddish, fromthe ancient legend of a wayeard ghost to a 17th-century Ukranian pogrom, he offers as well a mourners response to the questions of fate, freedom, and faith stirred up in deaths wake.

Lyric, learned, and deeply moving, Kaddish>/b> is suffused with love: a sons embracing of the traditon bequethed to him by his father, a scholars savoring of its beauty, and a writers revealing it, proudly unadorned, to the reader. From the Trade Paperback edition.
