Five Week Book Club (All Losses)
September 13, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Book: The Beauty of What Remains: How Our Greatest Fear Becomes Our Greatest Gift by Steve Leder
As the senior rabbi of one of the largest synagogues in the world, Steve Leder has learned 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. Yet even after having sat beside thousands of deathbeds, Steve Leder was not fully prepared for the loss of his own father. 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. The named book is required reading and can be purchased online.
