Tefilla Halacha

Chazal instituted to recite what we call kaddish derabonon following the public study of Torah – primarily aggada (which is why we say a short piece of aggada before saying it, whenever it is said). One need not be a mourner nor not have a parent alive in order to say it – but usually, it is said by a mourner.
