About-

For anyone who has suffered loss, or is facing a personal trial, the pain can be overwhelming, and you might feel at a loss as to where to look for healing. From a young age I have wondered about the day that I will die and what my life will have meant. At the age of twenty-two, I was confronted by death in the form of cancer, and then again at age thirty-three in the form of heart disease. Those events helped clarify for me what direction my life should take, but only with the help of other people, my angels in the shadow of death. They helped show me the light when all I saw was darkness. And now I try to be an angel myself, to help those who feel like they are living in death’s dark shadow. We should never have to suffer alone. This is the story of my journey from illness to health, from darkness to light, and I hope that it brings healing and light to all who read it.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“A moving and deeply insightful account of a journey of illness, doubt, family, and faith.”

—David Wolpe, Rabbi, Sinai Temple



“Everyone experiences pain, fear, and loss in life. How we understand that challenge, and the wisdom we bring with us to the struggle, can make all the difference. Thankfully, we now have a master teacher, Rabbi Ahud Sela, who opens our eyes for Seeing Angels in the Shadow of Death. With stunning honesty, open spirit, and embracing wisdom, Rabbi Sela walks us through the valley of the shadow, and back out into the sunlight. This book is a pilgrimage, and a blessing!”

—Bradley Shavit Artson, Roslyn and Abner Goldstine Dean’s Chair, Professor of Philosophy, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies



“Ahud Sela has written a moving personal memoir of his own physical illness, his coming to grips with his mortality, and his discovery of the ways in which Judaism could provide meaning for his life and his ongoing confrontations with death.”

—Edward Feld, Rabbi, editor of Rabbinical Assembly prayerbooks
