The classical resource for Jewish couples struggling with issues of infertility and adoption. The book includes chapters on the emotions of infertility, the new reproductive techniques, pregnancy loss, and adoption. by Rabbi Michael Gold
This is a generous, spirited, moving, and thoroughly informed book on a most sensitive subject. Rabbi Gold takes out of the communal closet an issue that should have been dealt with long ago so that every infertile couple need not reinvent the wheel. He asks and answers every conceivable question – and then some – moving from the trauma of infertility to the affirmation of life.
– Blue Greenberg, Author of On Women and Judaism
And Hannah Wept is a clear, thorough, and often moving explication of one of the dilemmas of modern Jewish family life. Individual readers, lay and professional, study groups, and formal classes will benefit from the wealth of information and insight gathered in this volume.
