The Caring Committee Program at Cong. Shir Hadash presents:
Mapping the Journey: The Mourner & the Soul
Losing someone dear catapults us into a liminal place. In a sense, “we are lost.”
Rabbi Me’irah Iliinsky has combined her experience as a clinical social worker, artist and rabbi to make a map to assist in finding one’s way through mourning. It is composed of four panels in Jewish ritual time: Aninut, Shiva, Sheloshim and Yahrtzeit. The book articulates each vignette on the map. Not only are the meanderings of the mourner described, but also, according to Jewish tradition, the whereabouts of the soul.

“A treasure both visually and verbally. Its images and words evoke and invite in a way that is both simple and deep - a powerful combination.”
