May 22, 2015 – 4 Sivan 5775

Last year the Shavous holiday ended the Shloshim period of mourning for my mother a”h. This year the Shavous holiday which we will, please G-d celebrate this weekend, brings to a conclusion my Saying Kaddish blog.

A fitting way to end my year’s journey is with the following blessing discussed by the great halachic authority, the Bach, at the end the laws of mourning in the Tur. This blessing is normally recited in the benching (grace after meals) in the house of a mourner during the shiva period but I believe is very appropriate as my year of mourning ends.

May the Merciful repair this break in the wall of His people and all of Israel and grant life and peace.

May the Merciful bring joy to the mourners that they should be happy and content.

May the Merciful comfort the mourners with the rebuilding of Jerusalem together with the entire Jewish People.

He who makes peace in high places, He will make peace for us and for all of Israel. Amen.

Good Shabbos and Chag Sameach

    • Yonoson,

      Thank you for being such a dear friend; for the time you came to the hospital, your attendance at the levaya, and for all the support your entire family gave us and continues to give us. May we be blessed to share in each other’s lives ad meah veesrim and may we celebrate many simchas together.
