The Modern Loss Handbook: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience is what author Rebecca Soffer wished she had after her parents died, offering a welcoming space in which to grow thoughts and feelings as they evolve and create a personal roadmap toward resilience. With warmth, wit, and disarming humor, Soffer and Rabbi Baht Weiss will unpack the wisdom of the book and discuss how the long arc of loss can be woven into our lives in a way that is practical, creative, comforting, provoking, and, finally, hopeful.
