    A very similar custom is mentioned in the Talmud (e.g., in Tractate Moed Katan 24b and Tractate Berachot 16b, 17b, Rashi / רש"י ad loc.). In some communities, men form a Shurah to comfort male mourners, and women — to comfort female mourners. Other communities form parallel rows only for male mourners. In some communities, after the male mourners pass, the men form a single row. A while back, a book was released with the title "God: A Biography." The author, Jack Miles, attempted to describe the character traits of God by analyzing him as the protagonist of the Torah. This exercise has value because imitating God is a very Jewish concept.

Moses Allen, of the state of Georgia, who departed this life in New-York, of the fever prevailing there, on Tuesday, the 13th day of October,in the 25th year of his age, and delivered in the family of Elisha Lee, Esq. of Sheffield, on the 24th day of the same month, for the consolation of the afflicted parents.

Providence is slightly different as it is a supernatural kind of book. I sometimes struggle with some of the dialogue in the book as I usually like my books centred a bit more in reality. However I did really enjoy this book as there is a strong love story/love triangle at its core/5().

A number of contemporary books, such as For Those Left Behind: A Jewish Anthology of Comfort and Healing and Grief in Our Seasons: A Mourner’s Kaddish Companion offer an array of inspiring poems, quotes and other readings. Below are some of our favorite Jewish quotes, poems and texts for comforting mourners.

The Bliss in Death: Why You Should Never Fear Death - And How to Comfort Mourners and the Terminally Sick (The Wheel of Wisdom) (Volume 45) [Karma Peters] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

WHAT WORD COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT DEATH. The truth is. To comfort them concerning their brother. —The days of mourning were usually thirty, which were divided into (1) three days of weeping; (2) seven days of lamentation; (3) twenty days of sorrow.

This fourth day after the death was the first of the seven days of lamentation. Furthermore, men are afraid of a high place and of terrors on the road; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags himself along, and the caperberry is ineffective. For man goes to his eternal home while mourners go about in the street.

We can choose to reach out and help and comfort those in need. I did a little research and pulled out my old art history books (I was an art history major in college) to look at the sculpture afresh.

All his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted and said, ‘No, I shall go down to Sheol to my son, mourning.’ Thus his father wept for him.” 2 Samuel “David therefore sought God on behalf of the child.

Professional mourning or paid mourning is an occupation that originates from Egyptian, Chinese, Mediterranean and Near Eastern cultures. Professional mourners, also called moirologists and mutes, are compensated to lament or deliver a eulogy and help comfort and entertain the grieving family.

Mentioned in the Bible and other religious texts, the occupation is widely invoked and explored in. This is applied by the evangelists to the great mourning that was at Bethlehem for the murder of the infants there by Herod (Mt.

), and this scripture is said to be then fulfilled. They wept for them, and would not be comforted, supposing the case would not admit any ground of comfort.

COMFORT is not her usual offering, but it's a must read, especially for anyone who has lost a child. Grief following the death of a child is said to be the ultimate grief and Hood testifies to that in this precious book/5.

Habakkuk asked God to remove wickedness and injustice from a nation that professed to believe in the High and Holy One who inhabits eternity. He was told of God’s purpose to chastise severely this wayward people. The rod with which the Lord would correct them would be a violent invasion by a cruel and bloodthirsty [ ].

A portion of Ezekiel's prophecy also was a source of strength and comfort to believers: "The word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth.

Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord God. In this concise and accessible introduction, Paul Helm outlines for students and interested readers the doctrine of divine providence. Unlike many doctrinal treatments, his approach is not historically oriented.

Instead Helm focuses on the underlying metaphysical and moral aspects of God's providence, paying particular attention to the ideas of divine control, providence and evil, and the role Brand: Intervarsity Press. In the apocryphal part of this book (ch. 13 and 14) we have Mordecai’s prayer and Esther’s upon this occasion, and both of them very particular and pertinent.

In the sequel of the story we shall find that God said not to this seed of Jacob, Seek you me in vain. THE SINNER'S GUIDE Chapters Venerable Louis of Granada. CHAPTER The Tenth Motive for practicing Virtue: The Thought of Hell, the Fourth of the Four Last Things. The least part of the happiness we have endeavored to portray should be sufficient to inflame our hearts with a love of virtue.

Enchanted August book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. There are wittily crafted sentences, nothing harsh, but some gently realistic about this particular class and group of people.

Somewhat in the vein of Meg Wolitzer, but a bit more lighthearted. This was a book that is a little outside my comfort zone /5.

MACCABEES, BOOKS OF Just as those canonical books record God’s providence over Israel under Pers. rule, so 1 Maccabees describes God’s care during the Gr. period. Some assert that this book was written as a sequel to Ezra and Nehemiah. There is little question that the author utilized 2 Maccabees as a source for his book.

The Book of Jeremiah (Hebrew: ספר יִרְמְיָהוּ ‎; abbreviated Jer. or Jerm. in citations) is the second of the Latter Prophets in the Hebrew Bible, and the second of the Prophets in the Christian Old Testament. The superscription at chapter Jeremiah –3 identifies the book as "the words of Jeremiah son of Hilkiah".

Of all the prophets, Jeremiah comes through most clearly as.It is generally acknowledged that the type of relationship lost influences the reactions of the survivor. Because the needs, responsibilities, hopes, and expectations associated with each type of relationship vary, the personal meanings and social implications of each type of death also differ.
