Nachum welcomed Rabbi Asher Resnick to this morning’s JM in the AM to explore his latest Mosaica Press release, “Pain is a Reality, Suffering is a Choice.”
From the books website:
No one is immune from difficulties and challenges.
In response to the devastating news of his two-year-old daughter’s leukemia, her years of illness, and her subsequent passing at the age of fourteen, Rabbi Asher Resnick has devoted decades of study to comprehend and share the Jewish perspective on suffering and Divine Justice.
Pain Is a Reality, Suffering Is a Choice provides a deeply personal and profoundly human Torah perspective on some of life’s most basic and essential questions. Drawing on his own personal experience and a wealth of classical Jewish sources, the author sheds light on the Torah view of many fundamental topics:
- Painful emotions and anger at God
- Maintaining a connection with the deceased
- The World to Come and reincarnation
- Grappling with difficult tests in life
- Why painful things happen to good people
