Death & Bereavement
A Time to Mourn
Author: Jack D. Spiro
Publisher: JD

Judaism and the psychology of bereavement


  Product Description
Jews have been honored throughout the ages for their exemplary behaviour regarding the living. Even more extraordinary, has been their universal hait of compassion toward the dead. In his groundbreaking book, Rabbi Spiro considers traditional Jewish customs of mourning from a uniquely psychological point of view. His in depth analyses cover periods from biblical, talmudic, medieval, all the way through to modern times. By focusing on recognizable psychological struggles such as anxiety, ambivalence and guild, he sheds new light upon the meaning of rituals like "the week of mouning."

Though the book deals with a subject that has been called "the last taboo," its focus is on the living, providing life-enhancing guideposts for rabbis and religious leaders of all faiths as well as positivi help for anyone who has ever found themselves in the position of comforting the bereaved.
