Baruch Dayan HaEmet

Baruch Dayan HaEmet - Blessed is the True Judge.

This is the blessing said upon hearing the news of someone's death.

About 11:10 AM this morning (Friday), RivkA passed away.

Funeral plans are in the process, and we'll post them as soon as we know.

May RivkA's family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.


Please daven (or send happy thoughts) for the memory of RivkA bat Yishaya HaLevi.

With love and optimism,RivkA's family

I am so glad that we had the chance to tell RivkA here, and repeatedly, how much she meant to us.

RivkA - Lechi b'shalom.

To everyone else: Baruch Dayan HaEmet. May all the family be comforted by their amazing memories of this wonderful lady, and be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Last night as I said my tehillim for her I felt that I was giving her a final, really big hug.

We will all miss her.

Baruch Dayan Emet. RivkA touched so many people who will never "know" her or her family in the real world. .

Baruch Dayan HaEmet. We are all so blessed to have had RivkA in our lives...may those memories always be a blessing.

Such an ebullient spirit. I am glad I met her three years ago at that first Int'l Jewish Bloggers Conference and am truly aware that I was acquainted with a courageous, happy and determined soul, one that will stay despite the physical loss.

I will miss RivkA's blog. I wish I had a chance to know her better. May HaShem give you the family strength, and may you be comforted.

Baruch Daya HaEmet. Crying here too. I didn't know RivkA except through her blog, but I learned so much from her nonetheless. My heart goes out to her family. Hashem should give them the strength they need to continue on without their beloved RivkA.

Baruch dayan emet. I am so upset to hear this awful news. I didn't know RivkA, but as the daughter of someone who died of cancer, I found her blog tremendously powerful and touching.
Wishing the family a long life.

If you ever wished to see an example of a Woman of Valor, Rivkah was the embodiment of that weekly prayer. She not only fought cancer, she kept hope alive in others who were fighting it and was a teacher to all of us. Her faith and strength were stupendous. Gan Eden's gain is our loss. May her family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Again, we are with you.

Rifka, your journey is over, and I now think of your family with a very heavy heart.

Baruch Dayan Haemet.

It was a privilege to know you and I will never forget you and your wisdom and courage.

Joe K. said...

Baruch Dayan HaEmet. I am sure that when Jameel posted this weeks parsha, Chayei Sarah, this morning he and many of us thought of the many lives of RivkA. It is difficult to believe that someone so enthusiastic, opinionated, caring, stubborn, and full of laughter is no longer with us. If she were able, my guess is that she would tell us to have a Shabbat Shalom. ("How? That's your problem!"). . . and tell those of us who have not, that we should move to Israel. HaMakom yenachem etchem b'toch sh'ar aveylei v'yerushalayim.

The deleted comment was mine. I made a change and did not realize that it would be noted. But struck me that it is an appropriate reminder that nothing once here can ever be completely removed.

toddlerplanet said...

Oh, RivkA. Yours was a voice that was heard around the world. You will be missed.

I am not of the same faith as you, which you knew, but I will pray in the way that I know how for your memory and for your family.

Love, Susan

Val said...

So very sad. She will be missed

I am so very sorry. My prayers to RivKa's family and loved ones.

Baruch dayan emet. I am another who knew RivkA only through her blog, but like so many others, I felt that she was a very special person who set a shining example of how to confront adversity with courage, optimism, and faith. My deepest condolences to the family and all who knew her.

Mere words can not express how she touched my life even though I never met her. I lost my mom to cancer a year and a half ago and I took comfort in reading RivkA's blog. May her family find comfort. My deepest condolences....

Your voice will be missed.

I am very sad to hear this news - I have been following along with RivkA's courageous story. May the family find some nechamah and be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

It's a shame that I'm only today discovering this wonderful woman and her blog, as I'm seeing posts of her death on other blogs I follow.

Baruch dayan ha-emet.

I'm sorry I never got a chance to get to know this wonderful person who is so greatly missed.

May her memory be for blessing, and may her family and friends be comforted.

Descansa en paz querida RivkA.

I am so sorry I am just now finding this out. Rivka was and amazing woman and made sure none of us mothers who have cancer felt alone.

She will be severely missed. Blessings and thoughts are with her family.

Lady-Light said...

I had a few extra minutes getting ready for work (work is why I have not been blogging lately) when I was shocked and saddened to find a notice of RivkA's passing in my inbox.
I only knew her through her blog, and she came across as a courageous, righteous soul. I am sitting here fighting back tears. There is one thing I can say: that during her lifetime, RivkA lit up the world with her goodness. We will sorely miss her...
