Baruch Dayan HaEmet: Daniel Shawn Haimovich z”l

star-of-davidDaniel Shawn Haimovich, nephew of Gali Beh, passed away early Monday morning in Tuscon, Arizona.  It would have been his 21st birthday Tuesday. Shawn has struggled with epilepsy and autism his whole life. He was very close to his grandmother, Gali’s mother, and will be buried close to her on Wednesday night in Jerusalem.  Gali will be going with her sister to Israel for the funeral.

If anyone feels moved to give tzedakah in honor of Daniel Shawn’s memory, Gali’s sister is creating a co-housing community for adults with autism and has a go fund me campaign here. Also, see Gali’s moving note below.
May Daniel Shawn’s soul be at peace and hamakom y’nachem et ha’avelim – may all the mourners receive comfort and strength.
Rabbi Marc

My sister is building a co-housing community for adults with autism. She has a fundraising campaign:


The coop is called Blue Skies Farm. It was started in honor of my mother and will now also be in honor of Shawn. The first goats where born the night Shawn went into the hospital two weeks ago. Here is a photo of Shawn with my mother below. Thank you for sharing this with the community. It will mean a lot to my sister.
