Sherman, a rabbi from Syracuse, draws strength from his faith and from scripture in struggling with the aftermath of his four-year-old son's debilitating stroke in 1986. How to keep going after such a tragedy? It is difficult, to say the least, but Sherman writes “When I heard Eyal’s terrible prognosis, my life was shattered. But eventually, as Moses did, I got up and climbed the mountain again.”
