BD"E


I sat on a roof and watched the moon eclipse over Sydney Harbour early Shabbat morning. It was the most amazing sight, and I watched it for over an hour.

It seemed fitting that the moon would eclipse as my father Mordechai ben Menachem ob''m had passed away only hours earlier.

I will be sitting Shiva this week.

Lechvod Devorah,

I have been in pain all week with you - and you don't (yet) know me personally... that is a reflection of YOU and all the great comfort and encouragement that you have offered to all of us over the years...
The fact that your father, A"H has such an awesome daughter must be of Nechama in of itself...
I believe, with Emunah Shleima that as the Gedolei HaDor are saying, that the Geula Shleima will be here very soon and then we will all be reunited.
May your father be a Mailitz Yosher for your family and your extended family...Us,too.
All your Avodas HaKodesh has made an incredible contribution to the world and May you be comforted as you comforted all of us...
Hamakom Yinacheim Eschem b'Soch Sha'ar Avalei Tzion V'Yerushalayim...
M'Amka d'Liba,
Your friend,
-CS
