The loss of a loved one can be a devastating blow, its impact unpredictable and often perplexing. In this sensitively written volume, letters to a young man offer solace, strength and rare insight. The correspondence format allow Meir Munk to offer the comfort provided by classic sources in a conversational style that is easy to read and absorb. While the “letters” refer to the loss of a parent (and the remarriage of the surviving parent), other forms of grief are also addressed in this compassionate book, written for mourners and this in their circle.
In addition, separate sections offer insights and stories on such topics as Consolation, Kaddish, Divine Justice, and the World to Come.
Searching for Comfort is a direct balm to those in need and is also an invaluable aid to rabbis and other professionals who frequently must deal with the spiritual and emotional upheavals that beset families in mourning.
