Mourning and Mitzvah uses a series of exercises to help the mourner grieve. I suspect that the book is most helpful for those with some Jewish knowledge, but I believe that Jews and non-Jews can benefit from this book. I found that this book more than anything else helped me to deal with the death of my parents; and to learn that in addition to profound loss, there are also gifts of understanding that we can receive from experiencing the death of a loved one. I have given this book to several of my friends following the death of a parent.
