Title: Understanding the Afterlife in This Life

        Dr. Bernie Kastner grappled with the reality of his son’s death, facing the most exquisite pain of humankind. A Yeshiva University graduate and reality therapist certified at The William Glasser Institute, he wrote this book with an eye to coping with that pain himself and sharing the strengthening thoughts with bereaved readers. The author succeeded. Pages 94 and 95 of his 215-page hardcover book offer documented glimpses into the afterlife that can soothe survivors. There is more healing content throughout the text.

 

        Understanding the Afterlife in This Life is prepared in sections. The first is entitled “Seeing Behind the Curtain,” and describes what we know about life after death. The second section is divided into 11 segments detailing the spiritual and emotional journeys of both the deceased and his or her survivors. The third and last section is a literary review covering the topics, Overcoming the Fear of Death, Near Death Experiences, Terror Management, Logotherapy (finding meaning in a difficult life) and other relevant concerns.

 

         Designed to be read in any order, Understanding the Afterlife in This Life presents insights, issues and problem resolutions that can be absorbed by the reader at his/her own pace. Each of us heals at our own rate and travels on our own path toward acceptance- there is no one-size-fits all way to heal.

 

        Understanding the Afterlife in This Life belongs in the offices of mental health therapists, clergy, public and school libraries, and private homes. It would make a superb gift for mourners in need of a healthy transition to daily life after dealing with a terrible loss.

Tehilim 71:9 reads “Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.” The message is apropos to the endeavor – wonder and spirituality ruled as respect for aging heroes of the Shoah increased among Leo Baeck students.

Author: Irving Langer

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book. Page 249 explains why some Jews are praised as “fish on dry land,” a phrase that describes Moshe Rabeinu. Am Yisrael began to appreciate his depth of character at kriat Yam Suf, realizing that “he lived in the revealed world as though he were in the concealed world.”

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
