Then think of that face on Sabbath, when you say kaddish, the prayer for the dead.

Err, ... forgive this question of an uninformed-in-things-Jewish little person such as myself, but ... is Kaddish said as JUST a part of the Jewish Sabbath Service [and I mean NO belittling of this particular prayer by the use of the word 'just'] ... or is there MORE to it? (What I mean is: is the Sabbath day *especially* dedicated to commemnorate the departed?). I'm really interested about this.

think of that face on Sabbath, when you say kaddish, the prayer for the dead. Because there's no one else left to say it

Words are at a loss here... (But I think, however, that this woman's name is rather predestined, don't You agree? -- I mean, "Mrs. Comfort"). Makes one wonder ...

I'm afraid you confused the Kadish with the Kidush. They sound similar but are totally different...

No, actually I think I didn't. Kaddish = prayer for the departed, (right?). And the lady above mentioned it explicitely in her statements as being said on the Sabbath:

That's why I asked -- did I misunderstand something?

And the Kiddush is something completely different: it's the prayer (of blessing, I think) said at the Friday-evening dinner-table, (after which the Sabbath begins), if I'm correct.
