Kaddish Derabanan without Korbanos

I am making a siddur for a Jewish camp.

The campers are not fully religious, but we are teaching them tefillah. For Korbanot I have included what I understand to be the basic obligation, just the recitation of Korban Tamid from Bamidbar.

Since this basic recitation does not include divrei Chazal do I include Kaddish D’Rabbanan after Korbanot, Chatzi Kaddish, or no Kaddish at all, and just continue into Pesukei D’zimrah? Thank you.

Answer:

If you won’t be saying the other parts of the Korbanot, I think it is best to leave out the Kaddish.

According to the original Ashkenaz Siddur, this Kaddish is not recited.

Although many recite it, especially based on the Arizal and other Kabbalistic texts, if the Korbanos section is not included in the Siddur it is correct to leave out the Kaddish Derabanan and to proceed straight to Pesukei DeZimra, without any Kaddish recited.

Best wishes.
