My father, may his memory be a blessing, would have been 91 years old had he made it to his birthday on the 21st of this month. He died last night at 1:30 am.

Holy One of Blessing, Your Presence fills creation, You are indeed the Judge.

He had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for several years now and had been in a nursing home for the last three or four years. His health took a marked turn for the worse a couple of weeks ago and his death was not unexpected.


Exalted and hallowed be God's greatness
In this world of Your creation.
May Your will be fulfilled
And Your sovereignty revealed
And the life of the whole house of Israel
Speedily and soon.
And say, Amen.

May You be blessed forever,
Even to all eternity.
May You, most Holy One, be blessed,
Praised and honored, extolled and glorified,
Adored and exalted above all else.

Blessed are You.
Beyond all blessings and hymns, praises and consolations
That may be uttered in this world,
In the days of our lifetime,
And say, Amen.

May peace abundant descend from heaven
With life for us and for all Israel,
And say, Amen.

May God, Who makes peace on high,
Bring peace to all and to all Israel,
And say, Amen.
