Baruch Dayan Ha’emet: Lois Gelfarb z”l


We welcome our friend and my colleague Rabbi Ruthie Gelfarb back to Boulder after the very sad loss of her mother in New York where she sat shiva with her family. Lois Gelfarb z”l was a beloved wife, mother, sister and grand mother. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 6 months ago.
Peace on the neshama Leah Frymer, Lois Gelfarb.
Hamakom y’nachem – strength and comfort and the blessings of good memories to Rabbi Ruthie and her family.
