To Mourn A Child: Jewish Response To Neonatal and Childhood Death

Edited by Jeffrey Saks and Joel Wolowelsky  \  OU Press, 2013

This book is a collection of over 20 articles, which for the most part, present a personal account of loss. One hears different accounts of the experience of loss, bereavement and how people have dealt with their trauma and pain. The collection highlights personal responses from an Orthodox perspective. Many of the pieces refer us to sources in biblical and Talmudic literature. The book gives the bereaved reader the sense that he/she is not alone in the experience of child loss. We learn in reading this collection of others who have walked thorough the same ‘valley of the shadow of death’ and have garnered the strength to write about their intimate feelings and their deep emotions.
