Broken Fragments: Jewish Experiences of Alzheimer’s Disease through Diagnosis, Adaptation, and Moving On is being released this month.
JBFCS’ own Rabbi Weintraub has written the introduction to this sensitive look at the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s. Edited by Rabbi Douglas Kohn, the book presents essays by physicians, Jewish clergy, social workers, and family members of people with Alzheimer’s disease and intersperses them with Jewish texts.
Order it from URJ Books and Music.
