An engaging and sobering look at memorializing in Judaism and
why memory ours and God's is so central to people.
Through a series of lively introductions and commentaries, over
thirty contributors men and women, scholars, rabbis, theologians
and poets, representing all Jewish denominations examine the
history and ideas behind Yizkor, the Jewish memorial service, and
this fascinating chapter in Jewish piety.
Featuring the traditional prayers provided in the original
Hebrew and a new and annotated translation this fourth volume in
the Prayers of Awe series explores the profound theological
questions at the core of this service and our own humanity: What
happens to us after we die? Is there really an afterlife? Does our
fate after death depend on the goodness with which we have pursued
our earthly life? And more."
