To Mourn a Child

May 9, 2013

Steve Savitsky speaks with Rabbi Jeffrey Saks, one of the editors of “To Mourn a Child: Jewish Responses to Neonatal and Childhood Death.”

In To Mourn a Child, Rabbi Saks and Dr. Wolowelsky have assembled an anthology which consists primarily of personal accounts written by parents and other family members who experienced this devastating loss. In addition, there are essays by rabbis and healthcare professionals and selections from traditional Jewish sources.

“To Mourn a Child: Jewish Responses to Neonatal and Childhood Death” is published by OU Press and available here www.ou.org/oupress/item/100177
