Publisher Description

The national bestseller
 
From the author of the bestselling More Beautiful Than Before comes an inspiring book about loss based on his most popular sermon.

As the senior rabbi of one of the largest synagogues in the world, Steve Leder has learned over and over again the many ways death teaches us how to live and love more deeply by showing us not only what is gone but also the beauty of what remains.

This inspiring and comforting book takes us on a journey through the experience of loss that is fundamental to everyone. Yet even after having sat beside thousands of deathbeds, Steve Leder the rabbi was not fully prepared for the loss of his own father. It was only then that Steve Leder the son truly learned how loss makes life beautiful by giving it meaning and touching us with love that we had not felt before.

Enriched by Rabbi Leder's irreverence, vulnerability, and wicked sense of humor, this heartfelt narrative is filled with laughter and tears, the wisdom of millennia and modernity, and, most of all, an unfolding of the profound and simple truth that in loss we gain more than we ever imagined.

Holistically Loved ,

Grief comes to us all

My father passed away 3 months ago from COVID-19. This book has been such a gift to me. It brought me so much comfort, insight and made me cry. It helped me move through my grief and confirmed a lot of what I feel and believe. I’m so grateful for this book. I’ve bought this book for friends who have just lost loved ones.

Great read, self-reflection.

Great book, assists in reflecting on one’s own life, roles that we hold for others, especially our loved ones. These roles can be temporary or until our last day on earth, but regardless, play a role in The Beauty of What Remains.
