Book Review: Death: The Deepest Challenge

By Julian Sinclair

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2003

The author reviews Joseph B. Soloveitchik's Out of the Whirlwind: Essays on Mourning and Rachel S. Hallote and Ivan R. Dee's Death, Burial and Afterlife in the Biblical World. He contends that although the books have little in common, their unifying theme is the wisdom of Jewish law (halakha) in helping us to face death and bereavement in a way that is honest, dignified, and ultimately enobling.
