Someone recently told me the Chida writes someone saying kaddish for a father has precedence before someone saying kaddish for a mother. Where is this Chida and what is the reasoning?

    This is a more specific version of judaism.stackexchange.com/q/8591/170 and should I think therefore be closed as a duplicate. Instead of asking about the Chida separately, you can offer a bounty on that question and specify that you're looking for what the Chida has to say about it. – msh210 Apr 3 at 8:47
  • @msh210 The OP does specify that he's looking for what the Chida has to say about it. He doesn't ask what one should do; he asks "where is this Chida and what is the reasoning". – DonielF Apr 3 at 14:23
  • 1. As the mother provides the needs of the body and the father of the soul. 2. Everywhere the father precedes the mother. Why is it special to Chida? – Al Berko Apr 3 at 18:19
  • @AlBerko Interesting, thank you for sharing - On the contrary, this person told me it was based on the idea that women particularly have LESS spiritual lackings than men do since men are more likely at fault for not fulfilling the larger quantity of required mitzvos and would need kaddish to help men more. – NJM Apr 3 at 22:41
