there are many different versions of kaddish, not connected to mourning and even celebratory. Psalms are said during prayer services. Unlike kaddish, which is said only communally, psalms are said communally and individually. Like kaddish, they are said both in joy and sadness. We will examine a selection of psalms, some of which are regularly recited at Habonim, and others that are perhaps less familiar.
