Thoughts on Grief from a Prolific Story Teller
By Rabbi Nachman Selzter
In this conversation Rabbi Nachman Seltzer shares incredible insights about grief and nechama. At Eli Beer’s request, he has completed a book in just four weeks bearing witness to the stories of the many courageous United Hatzala members who showed up in the midst of the war on October 7th and heroically saved many lives. They too are now grieving for the lives they could not save. He also shares powerful anecdotes of grief in Torah, how real the connection still is to those we love and how we are only ever seeing a piece or fragment of Hashem’s perfect tapestry.
