Get More Enthusiasm for Your Judaism!
Well I assumed that the Temini said the special kaddish in the Rambam to be said at the gravesite. (It is the same Kaddish said at a siyum?) The practice of saying the birchat avelim and the addition to the bircat hamazon has fallen into general disuse but I see that the Art Scroll people do include it in their siddur. My question is when did Teminim start saying Kaddish Yatom in the synagogue for the eleven or twelth months like the Sephardim and Askenazim. My impression is that is was not done in Teman. It really gets confusing since we have mixed minyans and you never know when the Teminim are go to say a Kaddish. Sometimes everyone just walks out after Aleinu leaving the Askenazim wondering what to do.
It would seem here that the "Mourners' Benediction" was never seen as an absolute essential practice. It depended upon their seating arrangement.
