Dear Friends of Rabbanith Ruth Menashe, her family and MIDRASH BEN ISH HAI,

Thank you for the outpouring of love and respect that was shown to the Rabbanith Ruth Menashe (Ruth bat Ahuva) at the Young Israel of Great Neck. The extraordinary attendance at such short notice was nothing short of humbling and a deep and meaningful tribute to our beloved Rabbanith Ruth.

The Rabbanith and family will Be'ezrath Hashem be flying to Israel for the burial and the first part of Shib'ah. A eulogy will take place at the Shamgar in Jerusalem on Wednesday night, February 25th, Ohr LeZayin Adar. The eulogy will begin at 9:00 p.m. and end at 9:30 promptly.

We will then accompany the Rabbanith for Burial at Har Hazetim. We invite anyone who is comfortable accompanying us to join us. Security will be provided.

The family will sit Shiva at 38 Binyamin Metudela St, apartment #12 in Rehavia, Jerusalem, from Thursday morning, 7th Adar (February 26) through Mosei Shabbath (Saturday night), February 28th (Ohr L'Yod Adar).
 
The family will return to America to sit Shib'ah in Great Neck, NY, on Sunday evening Ohr L'Yod Alef Adar (March 1) from 7:00 p.m. through Wednesday morning, at 7 Linden Blvd., Great Neck, NY, 11021.
