The role of Kaddish


After Hallel on Rosh Chodesh, the chazan recites a full Kaddish.

This Kaddish, like certain others in davening, serves as a terminator - it indicates that Hallel is part of Shacharit, and that we have now concluded Shacharit.

Therefore, a shul which does not achieve a minyan until after Hallel does not recite this Kaddish.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 423:1; Mishneh Berurah 423:1)

Have a great day,
