  Excerpt from REMEMBER MY SOUL

"After my father died, I felt a tremendous need to do something; something of meaning and significance. I knew I wouldnıt say Kaddish more than once or twice. There had to be something else that I could do to help fulfill that need, and to make a difference."
---- Michael, 39 years old, businessman.

This book is for Michael, and for the thousands of others out there who feel just like him.

What This Book Is All About
The section of this book is a 30-day path of learning. Whether your loss was recent or many years ago, you will spend approximately five to ten minutes a day dedicated to the memory of your loved one, learning something from our Jewish heritage. Many of the main ideas central to Judaism will be brought to life. Some will be familiar, others will be new.

Each day begins with the same prayer:
May God remember my [relationship: mother, father, friend, etc], [his/her name] , in whose merit I am now studying about my heritage of Judaism and the Torah.

For example: If someone lost a father whose English name was John Stein, and Jewish name was Moshe, and his fatherıs Jewish name was Avrom, the prayer would go something like this:

May God remember my father, Moshe ben Avrom, in whose merit I am now studying about my heritage of Judaism and the Torah.

Or: May God remember my father, John Stein, in whose merit I am now studying about my heritage of Judaism and the Torah.

You may use their English names, but it is preferable to use their Hebrew or Jewish names. For example, you may say, "my mother, Robin Cohen", or "my mother, Rachel bat Yosef Chaim." "bat" means "daughter of", "ben" means "son of".

Itıs your choice. You can insert both English and Hebrew names if you wish, whatever you feel most comfortable with.

After the 5 to 10 minutes of study, you will end with the following prayer:

Our Merciful God in Heaven, May this portion of Torah learning be a merit and a blessing for my [relationship], [name]. May [his/her] soul be bound in the bond of life. May [his/her] resting place be that of peace.

Later in the book, people who have also experienced a loss will share their reflections. Space is included for your own thoughts and feelings linked to the theme of learning for that day.

Remember -- everything you do here in the memory of those who have departed makes a real difference. You are increasing their share in the World to Come. You are increasing their eternal pleasure.

May God comfort you in your time of sorrow, and may each moment that you are learning be a merit to the one who inspired it, the one you have lost.
