Question:

On Mariv on motzi Shabbos we had 6 who needed to daven and 4 who had already davened but they helped us to make a minyan so we could say Kaddish etc. After the amidah the Chazan said chezti kaddish then the 4 left as we said vhei noam etc. Should the Chazan continue and say the Kaddish shalam following or not with the 6 people who are left or is it enough that he said the chetzi one after the amidah?

Thanks

Answer:

He is allowed to and should say the full kaddish after v’ata kadosh. the reason is because the “kaddish shalem” is considered a continuation of the shmona esrei, which they started with a minyan. As a side point, the other 4 people were not allowed to leave the other 6, and they should have stayed until after the kaddish shalem after v’ata kadosh.

Best Wishes
