When I am a Shliach Tzibur, and there are no mourners, should I say Kadish at the end of davening? I know there is an opinion in the Shulchan Aruch that says that davening ends with Kadish. Does anyone know where in the Shulchan Aruch that is? Thanks.


Orach Chaim (132,2) in Rema writes that the Kadish Yasom is reserved for a yasom (i.e.one mourning a parent first 11 months). However, if there is no yasom anyone without a father and mother should say it and even one with parents can say it if his parents don't mind his saying that Kadish.

  • I learnt that someone with parents who wishes to say Kadish Yasom must have their permission first. – Avrohom Yitzchok May 26 '14 at 15:41
