daily kaddish: for those who die in bondage


On Erev Pesach, it seems appropriate to play a Kaddish for those who don’t escape bondage—for those who have died in bondage, recently and throughout history, and especially for those who have died in the recent uprisings in Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Tunisia…

This podcast marks the debut of a new recording of the “Kaddish” text by Mira—this time, the traditional “Kaddish,” straight up, with nothing but pauses inserted (by me).

    I’m trying for greater simplicity (as with charoset). And I think it works here well. I nice, dignified kaddish, simple, moving, and to the point. Going for less clutter in my life at the moment. Judging from this, I think we’re heading in the right direction.

      I knew it. Deep down you want Scandinavian modern in your house.

        I actually grew up on Scandinavian modern. My mom’s house still has many of the pieces we had when I was a kid.

        And I refuse to answer your question on grounds it might incriminate me.

          I won’t tell the Sephardi design police if you don’t.

            Well — I also like my Istanbul whorehouse look. (That’s what Mrs Tz calls my house). Funny thing is that half the stuff is from my dad. The other stuff is from my travels. And some pieces, of course are from my mom.

            Tonight I brought home my biofather inheritance: the Chinese brushes, art supplies, and all of his Chinese paintings. So. My style (given everything else) appears to be inheritance clutter.

            I do believe I’m ready for a post-clutter stage. But I’m not ready to let go the ghosts. Not quite yet.
