Tackling one of life’s greatest mysteries, Rabbi Ben Kamin examines the diverse ways we mourn the death of a loved one. Drawn from his forty-plus years’ of counseling the bereaved, Kamin uses parables and stories to provide thoughtful insights on how to encounter and endure heartbreaking loss. He further stresses the importance of addressing grief in the present moment or risk harming our physical, emotional, and spiritual health.


Rabbi Kamin offers solace and spiritual guidance on how to mourn in a productive and healthy way.


A simple spiritual guide for those looking for reassurance about how to live and move forward after a loved one dies.


Appeals to a wide range of readers with an agnostic “spiritual not religious” narrative.
Rabbi Ben Kamin holds a Doctor of Divinity degree from Hebrew Union College and is a nationally known clergyman, teacher, counselor, and the award-winning author of eleven books on human values, civil rights, and spirituality. He has a national platform as a scholar on the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and has led congregations in Toronto, New York, Cleveland, San Diego, and Laguna Woods, California. Since his ordination in 1978, Kamin has published hundreds of articles about community life in newspapers around the world, ranging from the New York Times to the International Herald-Tribune. He appears frequently on radio and television and serves on several national boards dealing with community affairs and multicultural relations.  In 2004, Kamin founded Reconciliation: The Synagogue without Walls, a privately operated institute for interfaith relations, pastoral and communal. He’s a working advocate for inclusive and post-denominational life services, mentoring, education, and counseling.
