Save the date

As I mentioned a few days ago, there is going to be an erev zikaron (memorial evening) for Rivka. It is going to be held on Thursday evening, 21 Marheshvan (November 17). I have not yet finalized the location, but it will be in Jerusalem, and I will let you all know as soon as it's finalized (hopefully within the next couple of days).

Please pass along this message to anyone who might be interested.

Wanted: Photos of Rivka

Y and I are preparing a slideshow presentation of photos of Rivka, to be shown at the erev zikaron (memorial evening) that we will be holding in another month. (More info on that to come shortly.)

We are looking for good photos of Rivka. If you have any, we would very much like to use them. (We're particularly short on pictures of her from the old "frisbee chevra" days [late '80's and early '90's].)

Ideally, we'd like to get the photos in digital form. If you only have prints but are willing to scan them for us, you'd be helping us out tremendously. If you aren't able to scan the prints but can lend them to us, then we'll try to scan them ourselves.

So if you've got good pictures of Rivka for us to use, please send them (or links to them) to this address.

12 months

This coming Friday (23 Tishrei / 21 October) [Isru Hag], marks the 12-month anniversary of Rivka's burial. (Note that this is not the yahrtzeit: The yahrtzeit is the one-year anniversary, which will be a month later, on account of the past Hebrew year having been a leap year.)

Family and friends will be visiting her grave Friday morning at 11:00 am, to recite Tehillim (Psalms) and Kaddish. All who wish to attend are welcome.

The Tehillim and prayers that will be recited can be found here. (For "שם הנפטר"/"Deceased name", enter "רבקה". For "העדה"/"Congregation", choose "אשכנז". Then click on "חפש"/"Search".)

Rivka's grave is at the following location in Har HaMenuhot (Givat Shaul):
גוש צ', חלקה ק"א, שורה ב', קבר 1
(block צ', plot ק"א, row ב', grave 1)
We will gather first by the gate at the entrance to the cemetary.

If you are planning on attending, please leave a comment on this post, or send an email, in order to help us ensure that there will be a minyan present.

Please pass along this message to anyone who might be interested.
