The Beauty of What Remains: Rabbi Steve Leder in Conversation with Amanda Kloots

Rabbi Steve Leder and Amanda Kloots

Join acclaimed author and senior rabbi of LA’s Wilshire Boulevard Temple Steve Leder for a conversation with The Talk’s Amanda Kloots about his bestselling new book, The Beauty of What Remains — an inspiring meditation on mortality, love, and resilience, based on one of his most popular sermons.

Having presided over a thousand funerals at one of the world’s largest synagogues, Rabbi Leder’s heartfelt wit and deep well of knowledge offers profound perspective, levity, and hope during a time of extraordinary loss. Kloots has become a voice of courage and inspiration in the last year after speaking out on social media when her husband, the Tony-winning actor Nick Cordero, passed away from complications of Covid-19. Hear them discuss how the pandemic has allowed them to see beauty in the world amid loss, the complexity of grief, what Jewish wisdom can teach us all about mortality, and much more.
