Out of the Whirlwind: Essays on Suffering, Mourning and the Human Condition Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, David Shatz (editor), Joel B. Wolowelsky (editor), Reuven Ziegler (editor)

Publisher: Ktav

The topics of mourning and suffering are among the most salient in the writings of Rabbi Soloveitchik, both when he describes personal experiences and when he articulates his philosophy. The essays in this volume powerfully illustrate the Rav’s peerless ability to derive a Jewish understanding of both God and the human condition from biblical and halakhic sources. The Rav explores such topics as the stages of mourning, the relationship between mourning practices and the mourner’s inner experience, the contrasts between individual and communal mourning, the significance of suffering, and the importance of emotions in the Jewish world view.
