When the diagnosis of illness shatters the veneer of our normal, comfortable, predictable course of life, we are embittered and confused. Why me?; is a question that reverberates uncontrollably in our heads. Cancer, especially, provokes such a response. With time, Why me is replaced by, What now?; Today, more and more people are surviving cancer. How do we keep going afterward? How do we maintain the connection to Judaism and God that we once had? Do we need to rethink everything we once unwaveringly believed in? This moving volume of essays written by rabbis, cantors, and other Jewish professionals who have all experienced cancer deal with these questions and many more.
