When we lose a loved one, the grief can be overwhelming. We question the meaning of life and death and often struggle with our faith in God. After the initial numbness of our loss subsides, we begin to seek solace from friends and family. Imagine, as a mourner, being able to seek comfort from the words of an inspiring rabbi whenever necessary, or as a rabbi, being able to find just the right message of consolation for a particular situation. In Jewish Meditations on the Meaning of Death, Rabbi Chaim Z. Rozwaski provides that much-needed opportunity. A collection of fifty-seven eulogies, this book addresses the death and bereavement of children, parents, siblings, and spouses under various circumstances. Rabbi Rozwaski draws upon his own experience, as well as the lives of the chasidic masters, the teachings of the Talmud and Midrash, literature, philosophy, and contemporary psychological studies of death and mourning to provide messages of inspiration and strength. Through its exploration of traditional sources, this volume becomes not only a sensitive book of solace and comfort but also a concise presentation of the Jewish view of death and mourning. A valuable source book, Jewish Meditations on the Meaning of Death deals with the concerns of people who are seeking understanding and meaning in their lives. Within these messages of comfort, the eulogies offer guidelines for living with faith and inspiration to make the most out of life.
