Cover - A Jewish Book of Comfort

“Be comforted, be comforted my people, says your God.”


Whether you are a person of faith or not, there are times in every human life when we need to find comfort to sustain us through pain, loss or bereavement. Throughout three millennia of Jewish history, Jewish sages have written words of encouragement, reassurance and hope, borne from suffering endured, faced, and overcome. This anthology presents a wide selection of poems, psalms and meditations from all periods of the Jewish past to the present day that offer words of comfort for difficult times. Themes included are illness, ageing, memory, grief, faith and much more.
