Dear Mushky,
There are no words… May Hashem, the only One who can comfort, comfort you, among all of Bnei Yisroel.
Stay strong and be in touch!
May we have Moshiach right, right now!

I have known ada for many years and she was an amazing person,she always saw the positive in every person, especially those children who were not successful academically .
She will be sorely missed by all those who knew her
May she be an inspiration to all of us,and pray for all of us untill moshiach comes.
From a good friend

Dear Ada's family
April 8, 2015 10:00 am

I never met Ada but even before reading these comments, just looking at her face, gave me such inspiration. I told myself that I have no right to get angry over petty things. I see before me a face of inner peace, gratitude, acceptance and happiness at whatever life has to offer her. And wanting to connect and share her happiness with others.. really, I see it on her face. If only I could be like that! If only we could all be like that! Surely Moshiach would be here.

April 8, 2015 12:57 am

Is shiva after yomtov or already over? Is there an email to send to the family? I have many wonderful memories of Ada that I would love to share. Had no idea she was battling an illness but from what I know of Ada, she certainly lived each day with as much positivity and kindness as she could

April 8, 2015 12:04 am

Dear Mushky, I am terribly sorry about what happened to your mother….. I want YOU to remember two things: that hashem is always listening to you! Through the ups and downs! And that moshiach is coming! Hang in there Mushky!

no words!!

Thank you all for your comforting words. We have read your comments and deeply appriciate the fond memories of Ada you have shared. Ada was such a positive, smiley, non judgemental person and a wonderful listener. She loved people and was not afraid to compliment them. Ada knew what was important in life and did not waste time with pettinesses. She did so much chesed in the quietest and most unassuming manner. Even though Ada was sick for years, she always walked around with a smile and with dignity. She was genuinely happy for others in a deep and real… Read more »

When Beryl , Ada’s mother, tragically passed away there was the same out pouring of grief and sadness.
Like mother like daughter . Both women with outstanding middos.
May both neshamos have an aliyah

Mushky with every kapital of tehilim that you say, you are sendind a message to your mother. Every time that you put a coin in a pushka you are sending her a letter. With every smile that you warm others with, you are sending her a text. She cannot respond, but she loves what you send her! When Moshiac comes, any moment, she will let you know in person how much your messages brought joy and pride to her!

Ada was my roommate in Sem in France about 20 years ago. I have very fond memories of her. I remember her as so many others have said as a true sweetheart, always cheerful and cheering up those around her and. She always had a smile on her face. She was so easy going and had a great sense of humor. She was liked by everyone. Very sad for her family. May Hashem grant her family much comfort and strength. And may they be reunited with the coming of moshiach speedily.

April 5, 2015 11:28 pm

Hashem should bentch you and your daughter with the strength to continue to bring warmth and simcha to those around you.

April 5, 2015 10:33 pm

Dearest Mushk here is a story of comfort for you love a friend. Rabbi Nachum Rabinovitz, who lives in Jerusalem, was once waiting for a private audience with the Lubavitcher Rebbe in New York. Among those waiting was a young man, obviously wealthy, but looking very despondent. A short while later, the young man entered the Rebbe’s room, and when he emerged, his expression had changed. His face beamed forth energy and vitality. Rabbi Rabinowvitz inquired about the young man’s identity from the Rebbe’s secretaries and was able to arrange a meeting with him. “I am a wealthy man,” the… Read more »

I think everyone of my children was friends with at least one of the Rivens when we lived in MTL. And I was friends with the mother.
The Rivens are friends with everyone.

There are no words. Nothing to say…. except:
BDE – May the family be comforted – and Moshiach Now.

Oy. What sad news. I did not know Ada, but still have a story to share. A couple of years ago my daughter was in Pardes Chana, in the same bunk as Mushky Herzog. We were not able to go visit her on visiting day. That night she called me and told me that when Mushky Herzog’s parents had realized that she didn’t have visitors, they included her with their family, even to the point of giving her $20 for canteen. I was so touched and called them to say thank you, and she really acted like it was no… Read more »
