The universal human experience of death and mourning is accompanied in Jewish tradition by a detailed array of ritual observance. The Mind of the Mourner analyzes this ritual framework, exploring how it was constructed to reflect the values and importance of the community and at the same time to address the emotional and psychological needs of the individual mourner with understanding, sensitivity and compassion.
