Mr. Wieseltier discussed his book, Kaddish, published by Knopf. The book is about the author’s life as an unobservant Jew whose grief over his father’s death compelled him to observe his religion’s rituals of mourning, daily attending synagogue to recite the Kaddish. The author delved deeply into a vast range of texts describing the history and spiritual significance of these prayers. close
