 Avelim (mourners) do not say kaddish on Festivals and Shabbat
 Last day = 8th day Pesach, 2nd day Shavuot & Simchat Tora. This Kaddish is called the “Stuipen Kaddish”, which Lex Vega (AAV) translated to “Convulsion Kaddish". There may be two reasons for this name. Convulsions are jerking movements. This refers to the beginning of each melody line, which consists of adjacent notes in quick succession. Another explanation is that this is the last Kaddish of the Yom Tov, so the “convulsions” of the Yom Tov.
