Reading Torah Through Grief
The story of Isaac reminds us that we can flow again into the stream of life.
The Torah urges us to remember the years of strength and virtue whenever possible.
To continue to live after loss, we must gently push ourselves to do what might seem impossible.
While grief is an inherently lonely and individual journey, we need not experience it alone.
Like Abraham, we can acknowledge that we had to leave home.
While our loved ones are physically gone, they have willed their unfinished dreams to us.
God created forgiveness before anything in the physical universe because human beings are bound to err.
