A Cantor Comments on Chatzi Kaddish

Some weeks ago, I subscribed to the Union for Reform Judaism’s “10 Minutes of Torah” e-mail series. On Thursday, the daily e-mail provided a wonderful lesson on “The Sounds and Music of Chatzi Kaddish,” replete with cantorial audio selections. I can’t say I’ve been won over to the final (Gottlieb) version discussed in the column, but I’ve really appreciated the opportunity to learn more about this incredibly important prayer.
