122. Kaddish and Distinctions Between the Dead

(Vol. XXIV, 1914, p. 153)

If this question refers to the preceding, I would suggest that the mourners stand at all recitals of the Kaddish for the dead, for whom mourning is a legal duty (viz., relatives in the first degree). If this question be general, I refer to Yoreh De-a, Hil. Avelut, where certain distinctions are set forth as the established din and minhag.
