    The pain is deep for all of us

    Even those of us who didn’t know the niftar. Every time we lose a young person in our community, of course we grieve for the families and young children left behind. But we also grieve for the loss of potential, the loss of people who made and continue to make an impact on the community. And that’s why the only way to really relieve our grief is to commit ourselves to continue the life work of these wonderful people who left us in the prime of their lives. Not to let their children grow up alone and neglected. Although we… Read more »

    it just brings to mind how fragile life is, we don’t know HaShem’s ways or plans. We have to remember to be kind to each other, considerate, and try to run our life in the ways of Torah and Mitzvos. May H’ grant Nechama to the family.

    Thx so much for sharing. My son was married a year and a half ago in New Orleans and the Kahaty family attended. I remember how he introduced himself to me in a local supermarket before the wedding and the his level of genuine happiness a being able to attend. As you said his level of true Ahavas Yisroel was indeed real and one we should all emulate

    Just read the above
    Very touching!

    This is something we all can improve on in
    Nadav”s memory-

    Take a moment of each and every day to ” be there in the moment ” with a family member or just any random person be it a neighbor , friend and even someone you don”t really know
    Show that person you truly care , be real and truly in the moment by connecting with that person. All it really takes is just a smile, kind word or gesture
    Let”s do this together

    K”ish echad ubelaiv echod”
    And bring about the Geula Shlaima Now!!!!!

    I didn’t know Nadiv personally, I actually don’t know how I know him but I knew his face so I must have met him somewhere. I really believe he wouldn’t want us to be depressed and down, but he’d want us to do positive things and genuinely feel positive. Let’s take a lesson from Nadiv and cherish the special people in your lives. When you see someone in the street, genuinely ask how they’re doing, instead of walking away. Put your phone down and talk to your spouse, children, parents- anyone. Let them know they are the most important thing… Read more »

    Yes, it’s so important commit in some way to continue the life’s work of those precious departed souls. Whether it’s “being in the moment” or whatever it is we can find in our hearts to do to keep them alive, to make the world a better place. Someone passed away not long ago who was not the most popular person on the block. Someone who carried a very big pekel. A million people did not come out for the levaya or shiva. But I knew that this person did mivtzoyim, always taking literature wherever they went. It’s not the easiest… Read more »

    to curious #4- family's number

    you have a very nice thought of helping the family/little children out after shiva as part of your chesed from bnos menachem. instead of posting their number here in a public forum, please email [email protected] and the shluchim in new orleans where he is originally from will give you the phone numbers etc that you need. may we always help each other for simchas!!
