Every day requires planning. When and where will I say kaddish?
Sounds pretty simple doesn’t it?
Well consider this past weekend. Shabbos in Queens. Sunday in New Jersey. Return to Silver Spring Sunday night. Fulfilling my kaddish responsibilities beginning Friday evening through Sunday night found me attending seven different minyanim at seven different locations and working my entire schedule around minyan times. Add to that the need to plan extra travel time due to summer traffic and the days began early and ended late.
Accomplishing all the the tasks of a day requires planning and careful time management.
And – I just realized – I need to leave my office now if I am to quickly eat dinner, learn the daf and make the 10 pm maariv at the Yeshiva.
Just another typical day saying kaddish.
