Publisher Description

This exploration of the emotional and spiritual aspects of spending a year in mourning will resonate with anyone who has lost a loved one—from the author of The Search for God at Harvard.

"His candid, searching book ... breaks our heart." —The New York Times Book Review

Ari Goldman describes how his year in mourning for his father affected him as a son, husband, father, and member of his community. Through the daily recitation of kaddish, Goldman discovered that he could connect with and honor his father and his mother in a way that he could not always do during their lifetimes. And in his daily synagogue attendance, he found his fellow worshipers to be an unexpected source of strength, wisdom, and comfort.

Living a year of Kaddish

This is a wonderful, very readable memoir. I read it while I was saying kaddish for my father. It made me think about the different experiences I was having and the different communities I was entering every day as I tried to fulfill this obligation that I knew my dad would appreciate.
