Feelings of loneliness, isolation, and depression sometimes overcome people who have recently been bereaved, filling them with hopelessness and despair, extinguishing their will to go on living. When Mourning Comes is a unique source of comfort and hope. Written by William B. Silverman—a prominent rabbi—and Kenneth M. Cinnamon—a clinical psychologist—When Mourning Comes is not a book about grief, but rather a guide for the grieving. Full of comforting insights and wise suggestions on how to view and cope with the grief of bereavement, this book draws on the author's own experiences and those of people whom they have known and counseled over the years.
William B. Silverman has served as congregational rabbi in pulpits across the United States and is author of a number of books, including The Sages Speak: Rabbinic Wisdom and Jewish Values. Kenneth M. Cinnamon, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist, author, and consultant.
