In Kaddish.com, Nathan Englander, the Enfant terrible of contemporary Jewish literature, fixes his lens on an impious son trying honor the memory of his father, while retaining his freedoms. In this Drisha Book Salon and Beit Midrash, we’ll consider the history of the mourner’s kaddish and its continued resonance in our bewildering modern world.
