Question
When davening at home, I know I don’t say Kaddish, no repetition of the Amidah, and certain pesukim where the Siddur indicates to skip if not with a minyan. But do I skip everything where it says “the Ark is opened”? What about where it says “the Leader and the Congregation” and similar instructions? Do I skip the entire Repetition? On Rosh Hashana, etc. so much of the significant pesukim and piyutim are in the repetition and it seems it would be too much to skip the entire repetition. On Mon/Thur/Shabbat do I just read the Parasha from a Chumash with no blessings, etc.? Is it permissible to include some parts of the repetition (and how do I know these – if any)? The general guidelines I learned don't seem to address these questions. Thank you.

Question
Excerpt from My Jewish Learning: Traditionally, Jews are required to say the Kaddish for 30 days after burial for a child, spouse or sibling, and for 11 months after burial for a parent. From then on, one recites Kaddish (1) on a loved one’s yahrzeit (the Hebrew anniversary of their death) and (2) at Yizkor (memorial) services. Some people say Kaddish for the departed not only at (1) and (2) but daily at every prayer service. What is your opinion on this practice?

Question
Kabbalat Shabbat services order of the ending prayers - Amidah, Vayechulu, Magen Avot, Kiddush, Aleinu, Mourners Kaddish. In some prayer books the following verse is inserted before Vayechulu - Vayehi erev vayehi boker yom hashishi (and it was evening and it was morning, the sixth day). Why is this verse inserted in some prayer books? And why not in all prayer books? Someone told me that it may have something to do with saying the prayers in synagogue vs at home.
