Mourning in the Digital Age

This article, publishing in the New York Times, just came across my desk.  I’ve long been a fan of Bruce Feiler’s writing, and again I think he hits on something critical going on in our community today.

In our constantly connected world, when death occurs, do we give ourselves the gift of time to experience our grief?  I wonder.  There is a lot that can be said of where we are at today in relationship to grief, and how the Jewish tradition may serve as a salve in difficult times.

Take a look at the article.  Let me know your thoughts.
