Profound thanks
To all the extraordinary soloists and choruses who have interpreted Kaddish
To all the extraordinarily generous supporters of the Kaddish Project

And, most especially, to the Survivors whose testimonies have become the songs of Kaddish.

This list is clearly incomplete - and growing! If you don't see yourself here but know you should be, please accept my profound gratitude. You know who you are, and so do I.

Thanks to you all!!! Please keep working for the repair of the world.
