Mourners say Kaddish to show that despite the loss they still praise God.The opening words of this prayer are inspired by Ezekiel , a vision of God becoming great in the eyes of all the nations.
The Mourners, Rabbis and Complete Kaddish end with a supplication for peace ("Oseh Shalom..."), which is in Hebrew, and is somewhat similar to the Bible Job 25:2.Along with the Shema and Amidah, the Kaddish is one of the most important and central elements in the Jewish liturgy. Along with some prayers, it can only be recited with a minyan of ten Jews.Most of it is written in Aramaic, which, at the time of its original composition, was the lingua franca of the Jewish people.It is not composed in the vernacular Aramaic, however, but rather in a "literary, jargon Aramaic" that was used in the academies, and is identical to the dialect of the Targum.Yit-ga-dal v’yit-ka-dash sh’mei ra-ba, b’al-ma di-v’ra chi-ru-tei, v’yam-lich mal-chu-tei b’chai-yei-chon uv’yo-mei-chon uv’chai-yei d’chol beit Yis-ra-eil, ba-a-ga-la u-viz-man ka-riv, v’im’ru: A-mein.Y’hei sh’mei ra-ba m’va-rach l’a-lam ul’al-mei al-ma-ya.
