The Eulogies for RivkA

RivkA's family requested that the video-recorded eulogies from RivkA's funeral be posted.

They are being posted in sequence, from top to bottom, in the order they were given. Each video clip states the name of the person who gave the eulogy, and the language it was presented in.



















Updated: Moshe part 1



Moshe, part 2





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

Thank you for posting this for those of us who could not attend and pay our respects in person.

To RivkA's family- please count me among those who never had the privilege of meeting Rivka in person, but considered her a friend nonetheless.

Jameel, thanks so much for posting tihs.

Wasn't there a hesped by her son? I don't see it here.

Batya said...

Jameel, thanks. I got there today.

Moshe's video was removed by YouTube because it said it was too long. Is there any way someone can split them up? I've love to hear it. Thank you~ Andrea

Jameel, Thank you for all of the work and updates you have put into RivkA's blog. I would also very much like to see Moshe's video as well if it is possible to split it up.

Add me to the list of hoping, in the wonderful work you are doing keeping us updated, that Moshe's video can be split up and posted.

Thanks, Jameel. These updates are very much appreciated.

Hi All -

Moshe's video is being uploaded in 2 parts now...

Anonymous: RivkA's son didn't give one of the hespeidim.

Thank you for sharing this with us. What a wonderful woman! I was touched all over again. Blessings to RivkA's family.

This song (http://www.shiron.net/artist?type=lyrics&lang=1&prfid=1004&wrkid=1229 - My Last Summer With You) reminds me of RivkA, especially what she expressed in her blog postings "No Droopy Eyes" and "Playing in the Rain". Where I live in Israel the first big rain of the season came on Shabbat, just after RivkA passed away. This song reminds us not to cry but to think of her positively with every first rain. We'll obviously think of RivkA much more than that, of course.

Anonymous - I also had that song running through my head this past week - especially Friday night, when I went to walk my dog and got completely drenched.

Unfortunately, for much of the Israeli people, the song got usurped by the Rabin assassination...

Thank you all for sharing these eulogies with us. They were very endearing and I am honored to be able to hear them. Peace be with RivkA's family.....many hugs from Canada.....:-)

I really appreciated the opportunity to hear the eulogies. I was very sorry that I could not make it to the funeral from the United States.

I am so glad I was able to participate in a small way by listening to the hespedim. Jameel, you've done so much to keep us in the loop. I know it takes a huge chunk of time and it does not go unappreciated.

Again, thank you Jameel for all your hard work, labor of love though it is.

I wanted to share this song at the above link called Wish you Well by Katie Herzig, it just seems to fit with how we love and think of RivkA.
