for Rabbi Mel Glazer’s And God Created
It was about time someone wrote this book. And we couldn't be more pleased that the author is someone we trust with the topic that is most dear to our hearts.
Rabbi Glazer's personal relationship to profound losses, coupled with his religious learning and grief Recovery training, make him the perfect messenger to help get the heart, the spirit, and the brain back into harmony. When we are able to address our broken hearts with the correct tools, our hearts, our souls, and our minds can soar again. That idea can give you the hope to read this book and find the tools and actions contained within it that can help you better your life and the lives of others.

Thanks so much for coming on the show this morning.
You were great! Had two people call barely before you
and I had hung up the phone to say how much they
enjoyed what you had to say. It's not until you talk
to a an honest to goodness spiritual rabbi before you
realize just how much we are missing here in Windsor.
It's very frustrating and sad. We have a fairly
secular to non-existent community in Windsor.
help but wonder if we had been lucky enough to have
someone like you if maybe our community would have
been different. Ah well. I guess we'll never know. I
very much look forward to talking to you real soon."

“Rabbi Glazer’s book is filled
with kindness, compassion and insight into
every kind of loss in the human experience.
He tells us the stories we love and shows
us how to wander through the desert of loss,
find faith, strength, and joy, even in our
sorrow. This is a book well worth reading
for all of us who grieve.”
—Kathleen O’Hara, MA, author
of A Grief Like No Other: Surviving the Violent
Death of Someone You Love
“Grieving the loss of a loved one
is like being in a different country without
a map. We lose our bearings. And God Created
Hope helps us transcend our lostness while
also helping us reconcile death as a part
of life. The scripture references and personal
stories that Rabbi Glazer weaves throughout
the book provide reassuring directions as
we wander through our grief. Though the specific
journey differs for each person, it is through
hope that we eventually heal. And this book
helps us find hope.”
—Mary Polce-Lynch, PhD, author of
Nothing Left Unsaid: Creating a Healing Legacy
with Final Words and Letters
“[Grief] is an age-old problem so
it is quite appropriate to go back to the
Bible and learn from our predecessors about
how to deal with the loss of loved ones,
be they pets or family, and express our grief.
I truly think reading this book will help
everyone because thinking about the subject
and your personal experience is what needs
to be consciously dealt with. The memories
live on within us and need to be acknowledged
and experienced and the wounds healed.”
