David’s Yahrzeit

Posted: July 30, 2014 in Uncategorized

August 1, 2014 is the 4th day in the month of Av. This is the date according to the Jewish calendar that David died. Thus, this is his authentic yahrzeit, beginning July 31 at sundown and ending August 1 sundown.
This is a day to do things in his merit, special, for his soul to be enabled, to be elevated to higher places in the heavenly world.

    That is a truly beautiful custom. He will be in my thoughts and actions today. He was generous and kind and I will keep that spirit in my heart and keep him in my prayers.

    He will always be with us as long as you and I and others share his memory. B.G.

    Yes. He is alive within me. I am going to post a blog on Huff Post soon called “Since My Brother’s Murder.” I started working on it before I realized his Yahrzeit was upon us. Will send out notice once it’s up.
