Kaddish for Sibling

How long does one say kadish for a sibling if there is a son to say it for the whole year?


When there is a son saying Kaddish, the siblings generally do not say kaddish at all.

  1. My mother passed away 2 1/2 years ago and I said Kaddish for her for the full 11 months.
    My sister passed away about 6 weeks ago. Her son (my nephew) doesn’t know how to say Kaddish and won’t learn. I have been saying Kaddish for her the past 30 days and two weeks
    but don’t believe I should go the whole 11 months for her. Can I hire someone to say Kaddish for my sister in lieu of her son for the year? I want to do the right thing for her.
    Thanks for your help.

    1. If you can’t do it yourself, the next best thing is to hire someone else to do it.
