Summary
Larry is an atheist in a family of orthodox Memphis Jews. When his father dies, it is his responsibility as the surviving son to recite the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, every day for 11 months. To the horror and dismay of his mother and sisters, Larry refuses, thus imperiling the fate of his father's soul. To appease them, and in penance for failing to mourn his father correctly, he hatches an ingenious if cynical plan, hiring a stranger through a website called Kaddish.com to recite the daily prayer and shepherd his father's soul safely to rest
Summary
An atheist son in an Orthodox Jewish family refuses to recite the Kaddish for his father after he dies, horrifying his mother and sisters, but then decides to hire a stranger through the Internet to recite the daily prayer
