"This book provides the Jewish perspective on the soul's after-life journey. As a work of practical spirituality, The Jewish Book of Living and Dying applies traditional Jewish concepts to help us meet the difficult times we all face." "The Jewish Book of Living and Dying is much more than a tour through the world of souls based on Jewish texts and tales. In this work of practical spirituality, Lewis D. Solomon explores various Jewish rituals of death and mourning and integrate ideas and perspectives about the afterlife with the various ritual practices used in times of death, burial, and mourning. Using traditional prayers and rituals and personalized meditations and visualizations as soul-guiding techniques, the survivors can assist a descendent's soul on its afterlife journey."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
