By Richard Hirsh
This accessible and informative book gathers the wisdom Jewish tradition provides for when we encounter death and loss. Traditions and customs are presented and explained, and extensive commentaries illuminate the variety of ways Reconstructionist Judaism can guide us through times of loss.

An extensive supplement includes rituals for getting up from Shiva, lighting a Yahrtzeit candle, unveiling/dedication of a memorial marker, and a ritual for closing a home following a death. Also included are the text, translation and transliteration of the Mourner's Kaddish.
