My Kaddish for Black Lives and All Victims of Gun violence

I was really touched and humbled by the attention that my prayer has gotten that I decided to re-record it in my recording studio AKA my dining room and with an iPad. In the previous version of this Kaddish it was dark and I used my travel guitar. This time it’s daylight and I’m using a full size guitar.

I wrote this version of Mourners Kaddish for all who have been killed by gun violence, for all unarmed people who have lost their lives at the hands of police and for people who have no one to say kaddish for them and please remember Black Lives Matter.


Yitgadal v’yit-kadash sh’mei rabba
B’allma dee v’ra chir’utei

Dear God lift me up in my time of need
Please show me how to live and love in peace
I want to live in a world full of hope
But it’s hard when there is so pain

v’yamlich malchutei,
B’chayeichon, uv’yomeichon,
uv’chayei d’chol beit yisrael,
Ba’agala u’vizman kariv, v’imru, Amen

Adonai, Adonai I praise your holy name
Turn my sorrow turn my pain and show me the way
Adonai, Adonai we bless your name
So that One day may there be peace for us all

Oseh shalom bim’ro’mav,
hu ya’aseh shalom aleinu,
v’al kol yisrael v’imru, Amen
