Why God Why?
Rabbi Gershon Schusterman knew all the textbook answers when comforting bereaved community members who asked him, “Where is God? If God is loving, how could this happen?” But when the rabbi’s young wife died suddenly, leaving him a 38-year-old widower with eleven children to raise, he found himself reeling.
His personal quest for answers to these timeless questions led him to a deeper exploration of Judaism’s teachings about how to cope with and transcend tragedy, teachings that have provided comfort and understanding to millions of people throughout the generations.

A Word from The Author
If you are going through a brutal, inexplicable loss— the death of a loved one, a shocking, unaccountable illness, a financial reversal, or any form of tragedy—I wrote this book for you.
In fact, if you are like me, you have quite possibly experienced a second loss that followed the first—a challenge to your faith, or perhaps even a loss of faith.
How can we go to God for solace, to help us come to terms with whatever bitter loss we are experiencing, if God is in fact the architect of that loss?
I hope my book helps you find peace with yourself, your circumstances, and with God during this time.
