  • Aliyah Rudoff and family on the passing of her father, Steve Rudoff
  • Terry Lewis and family on the passing of his grandmother, Lois Rottersmann and uncleDavid Lewis.
  • Talya and Julia Paeglis and family on the passing of their father, Arnis Paeglis in New Jersey.
  • Rafi & Michal Zitvar and family on the passing of her father, Isaac Shwarzman in California.

PARSHA: Eulogies for the Living
