Jewish Journeys Through Diagnosis, Treatment, and Recovery
 
When the diagnosis of illness shatters the veneer of our normal, comfortable, predictable course of life, we are embittered and confused. "Why me?" is a question that reverberates uncontrollably in our heads. Cancer, especially, provokes such a response. With time, "Why me?" is replaced by, "What now?" Today, more and more people are surviving cancer. How do we keep going afterward? How do we maintain the connection to Judaism and God that we once had? Do we need to rethink everything we once unwaveringly believed in? This moving volume of essays written by rabbis, cantors, and other Jewish professionals who have all experienced cancer deal with these questions and many more. Their personal stories are interwoven with Jewish texts and teachings.

Heads and Tales: Stories of the Sages to Enlighten Our Minds

Rabbi Edwin Goldberg's new book Heads and Tales: Stories from the Sages to Enlighten our Minds brings age-old tales to life once more. Designed as an introduction to the art of reading rabbinic literature, Heads and Tales opens the door to the creative genius of the rabbis of long ago.

Using this carefully selected collection of stories, Heads and Tales will help instill a love of Jewish stories, while also helping students gain the skills needed to be critical readers of these traditional stories. In addition, these stories demonstrate that the issues that concerned our ancestors in past generations are similar or are the same as those that concern us today. The tales found in the book, while they may have been written in years gone by, remain most relevant.

  • Perfect introduction to traditional text study
  • Texts provided in both Hebrew and English
  • Discussion questions included
  • Insightful commentary on each story
  • Well-suited for high school or adult education classes
