Rabbi David Wolpe
f MAKING LOSS MATTER
With a Foreword by Mitch Albom
“A rabbi who is as gifted with words as he is
with wisdom.”—Chaim Potok. “This is a book
to pass on to people who are grieving —i.e.,
every single person we know.”—Kirkus
Reviews. A theologian with the heart of a poet,
Rabbi David Wolpe explores the meaning of
loss, and the way we can use its inevitable
appearance in our lives as a source of strength
rather than despair.

A Jewish View of God

and inspiration. 192 pp.
