Just what do you say at a funeral?
How do you sum up a life well-lived in a few short paragraphs?
Rabbi Jonathan Miller of Temple Emanu-El in Birmingham, Alabama shares a recollection of ordinary people and his eulogies for them at the time of their death. The people remembered here were not famous. They were ordinary folks, like most of us. Brought together in a small Southern Jewish community, these ordinary people paint a picture of an extraordinary period and place in Jewish history. These remembrances will focus you on how to live your life better, appreciate the ones you love, and remember what is truly important about the life you live.
