Judaism and Grief, with Rabbi Batsheva Meiri
In this episode, Will sits down with Rabbi Batsheva Meiri of Congregation Beth Ha Tephila in Asheville, North Carolina, to talk about Judaism and grief.

This latter topic opens the dialogue to the realm of trans-generational grief in the Jewish community and leads to the contemplation of the spiritual resistance cultivated by Jews and members of other faiths throughout the ages.
