Trying to learn this Ashkenazi accented kaddish from the Chabad ‘learn to recite kaddish like a pro’ website was absolutely daunting — and hilarious. The ‘oi’s of it all feel downright barbaric, antiquated and shtetly–quaint. Much more exposure, and it might be catchy.

If you didn’t catch them, these were the Ashkenazi substitutions:

ויתרומם – ve-yitroimum instead of ve-yitromum

עשה – oiseh instead of oseh

שלום – shaloim instead of shalom

במרומיו – bimroimav instead of bimromav
