This post is being continuously updated till after RivkA's funeral/livaya - please go to the bottom for updates.
The funeral for RivkA will be held Saturday evening, Moetzei Shabbat at 10PM.
It will be at the Kehillat Yerushalayim Beit Hesped in Givat Shaul, Jerusalem, across from the Herzog Hospital (on Har Hamenuchot).
Update: The family is looking for friends of RivkA who would like to volunteer to do "shmira" and say tehillim next to RivkA from 4 PM this afternoon (Friday) through Motzei Shabbat at 6 PM at Shaarei Tzedek Hospital (bring warm clothes). Each shift should be between 4-6 hours, based on the number of volunteers.
Shiva information and additional details will be posted.

Update: People speaking at RivkA's funeral are requested to speak in English (if they can) so that RivkA's family from the USA can appreciate your thoughts as well.
Update: As is the Ashkenazic custom in Judaism, after a person dies, they are referred to by their name, and as the son/daughter of their father. Therefore, for those who are praying in her memory, her name is RivkA bat Yishaya HaLevi.
Saturday Night Update: Reminder -- the funeral is at 10 PM, Saturday night, and NOT at 8 PM as it appears on signs around Jerusalem. Shiva information and additional updates posted at the top of the blog. (Or here)
May RivkA's family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for the memory of RivkA bat Yishaya HaLevi.
With love and optimism, RivkA's family
Last HH of 5774 at Shiloh Musings!
