Whether you are a person of faith or not, there are always times in every human life when we need to find comfort, to sustain us through times of anxiety, disappointment or pain, times of loss or bereavement. Throughout the millennia of Jewish history, from the Hebrew Bible to modern times, Jewish sages have written and spoken words of encouragement, reassurance and hope. This anthology presents a wide selection of poems, psalms and meditations from all periods of the Jewish past and the present day that will provide food for thought, and words of comfort at difficult times of life. Themes included are illness, ageing, patience, loss, memory, grief, faith, immortality and much more. The wisdom in this book is deep and real, and is borne of centuries of suffering endured, faced, understood and overcome.
