Chapter 129:1
The Month of Elul

1. In every Kaddish prayer recited from Rosh Hashana through Yom Kippur, the word "le'eilah" ("above" or "beyond" - in the sentence which says that G-d is beyond any blessing) is repeated, that is, one should say "le'eilah, le'eilah.." (without the letter 'vav', as in "U'le'eilah). Since the Kaddish prayer must contain [exactly] twenty-eight words [from "ye'hei sh'mei rabbah" until "be'alma"], and during the rest of the year one says, "le'eilah min kol birchasah.." ("He is beyond any blessing"), [and we are adding the extra word "le'eilah," therefore, we have to remove one word] and say "le'eilah, le"eilah mi'kol birchasah" (although we have removed the word "min," the meaning is identical).
