My heart...

Dear Friends who have been following this saga of my---our---beloved---
Around 8:40 this morning, July 3, 2014, R' Meshullam Zalman Hiyyeh took a few peaceful last breaths in his sleep, and slipped away from us.

Baruch dayan emet
Thank you all for all your caring messages, which I read to him daily.
He would want you to continue giving tzedakah and doing your very own good in the world in his memory.
It is likely that the funeral will be tomorrow at Green Mountain Cemetery in Boulder; and we know that he was hoping for a good shloshim.
(I can't really think about that right now; I am waiting here in our room for the chevrah kadisha to take him, and cannot imagine that I will never see him agsin in this lifetime.)
I will try to remember to check this site later this week.

Blessings to you all,

Dearest Eve, my heart continues to hold you with so much caring... that you may feel the enormous love and gratitude that I and so many others have for you -- for who you are, and for how you have loved and cared for our beloved teacher. May you continue to feel this love, continue to feel held and supported as your journey through this time of loss, and may Reb Zalman's light and memory continue to be a blessing of love for all, Lynne

Just found out on email. So sorry to hear the news. So much love to you at this time.
I am in Jerusalem for three more weeks so I could not join you at the funeral. He is so alive in my heart. Hope to see you soon after I am back in town. Here things are tense with Old City closed and protests in many neighborhoods. Reb Zalman's life was such a blessing to the world and so is yours.

Z'L Moreinu v'Rabeinu HaRav Meshulam Zalman Hiyya HaKohen Shachter-Shalomi; Deployed by 'H as a Pathfinder and Paradigm Shifting Gate-Opener for the spiritual renewal of the Jewish people and the world. B"H May he now be at peace, and his family and all of us who love him find both comfort in his memory and challenge to hone our own Divine alignment and deployment to continue the work, for which he cared so deeply, of spiritual renewal and of Tikkun Olam.
