About this book

In 2009, Sherri Mandell won the National Jewish Book award for The Blessing of the Broken Heart, which told of her grief and initial mourning after her 13-year-old son Kobi was brutally murdered.

Years later, with her pain still undiminished, Sherri trained to help others as a pastoral counselor, one of the first in Israel’s hospitals.

Could a stranger offer comfort to patients and their families in the face of cancer? Could Sherri find comfort by comforting others?

This book is the moving memoir of an experience that was at turns painful, awkward, and funny, but always enriching.
