His funeral was in Massachusetts on Monday and the the family have now returned to Boulder.

To mark the final day of shiva, there will be a gathering in Ephraim’s memory at the home of Deborah Lieberman and Jonathan Friedman at 3pm this Sunday, June 26th, 3065 15th Street, Boulder, CO 80304.

Alav hashalom – peace on Ephraim’s soul. Hamakom y’nachem – strength and comfort to Jonathan and all his family in their mourning.
