Stepping back from kaddish


At the conclusion of kaddish (other than the half-kaddish) one takes three steps backward. Our practice is to then bow in different directions, as is done at the end of the amidah.

There is room to contend that the practice of bowing should be limited to the kaddish following the amidah, but our practice is to do it for every kaddish.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:113)
