Question:

can one say kadish for a young jewish singer who was not shomer torah and mitzvot if he passes away because you know nobody is capable of saying it in the family. Tragically a good jew who was very interested in rapping with a really humble heart overdosed and passed away. He never had exposure to Jewish learning and friends which was one of the reasons he didnt have the background. I really feel for him because I knew of him and saw another jew. He was only 26. Is there anything i should do? thank you

Answer:

You may definitely say kaddish for him, and it would a zechus for his poor neshoma. If you have parents that are alive though you should not say kaddish for him, however if you want you can learn mishnayos or say tehillim l’ilui nishamso.

Best Wishes
