Item description for A Mourner's Kaddish: Suicide and the Rediscovery of Hope by James Clarke...

A gripping personal account of coming to terms with tragedy. The death of a loved one is shattering. The death of a loved one by suicide asssaults the memory and changes forever the lives of those who are left behind. Ever since his wife's death fifteen years ago, author and court judge James Clarke has struggled to come to terms with her devastating decision. These writings began as a way of coping with overwhelming grief. Clarke allowed his thoughts, feelings, and pain to pour out in the hope of healing. While reading Rabbi Harold Kushner's When Bad Things Happen to Good People, he first encountered the Jewish prayer for the dead known as Kaddish. In the Jewish tradition, these prayers, recited by mourners, are not about death but about praising God for a good world. Without denying the tragedy, Kaddish prayers emphasize for the mourner all that is good and worth living for. After hearing cases in court, Clarke would write a 'Kaddish' or prayer for his departed. Now collected in book form, they are brave testimony to his efforts to come to terms with a shocking, inexplicable act. True to the spirit of Kaddish, this book is a brave prayer for healing and peace - peace of mind.
