We would like to thank all our family and friends for their love, support and kindness shown on the passing of our dear mom. Thank you for all the calls, messages and meals during Shiva, which were so much appreciated.

HaRav Zvi ben Yeshayahu ve’Frayda a’h

Swift as a deer (Zvi) to do the will of His Father in Heaven. (Ethics of the Fathers 5:20)
Grateful thanks from the whole family for the outpouring of love, respect, support and appreciation shown to us after the passing of our dear husband, father, grandfather and brother.

The messages are so very comforting. Please accept our sincere apologies if we have not managed to respond to your message personally — we have read them all and will cherish them.

Many people have shared how Rabbi Maizels touched them deeply, and how their interaction with him led them to be more careful in their mitzvah observance or interpersonal relations.

We ask that, in his memory, you try to emulate in a concrete manner one characteristic that you admired in him — either through increased observance of a specific mitzvah or enhanced interpersonal relations. In this way his memory will live on in all our hearts and through our actions. May all the good done in his memory be for the eilui neshama (elevation of the soul) of Rav Zvi ben Yeshayahu ve’ Frayda.

We thank Hashem for the gift of sharing our lives with such a special person.
