About Zevi

“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” ~ Mark Twain

When my kids sat down to decide what they wanted to do for Zevi’s yartzheit this year there was a unanimous response, “We want to do a Mitzvah Campaign in his honor.” We want to do something that Zevi would be proud of and could live on. There is no maximum dosage of doing kindness or mitzvahs for others.

Zevi was someone who defied logic. Battling with cancer for over six years he continued to have the world’s best attitude. At his Seudas Hodaa (Meal of Thanks) after he went through one of his many surgeries, his motto and table decor was based on the concept of, “Tracht Gut Vet Zein Gut – Think Good and it will Be Good.”

His emunah in Hashem was unparalleled. Even though he knew his cancer wasn’t gone after this surgery, he chose to continue with the Seudas Hodaa to thank Hashem for all the miracles and blessings that he had received so far. Everyday, no matter how challenging the day was, he davened and put on tefillin. If he couldn’t put them on himself he asked others. (Baruch Hashem, little did I know that my training would be helpful years later as I tried to help the boys do the same.) After a grueling 22 hour surgery where, unfortunately, many things did not go the way we would have liked he still put on tefillin! He never missed a day.

When visitors came to do the mitzvah of visiting the sick he always had a smile on his face and welcomed them. We held an almost weekly Thursday night Farbregen at our house and of course hand-grated potato kugel was served; nothing but the best for his friends.

The blood drive which was one of his “babies”, was something he did to help others have an opportunity at life. Despite the many challenges he faced, his goal remained to do mitzvahs and bring down a spark of G-dliness into this world to bring us closer to the arrival of Moshiach.

So on behalf of myself and my kids we are asking you all a favor.

Please join us and dedicate a mitzvah in memory of Zevi Silver a”h whose 5th yartzheit is on the 22nd of Sivan. Please spread this and ask your friends and family to join in as well. Nothing can possibly give his Neshama a greater purpose and elevation than our doing many mitzvahs in his memory.

Chapter 37

1. Of David. Do not compete with the evildoers; do not envy those who commit injustice.
2. For they will be speedily cut off like grass and wither like green vegetation.
3. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and be nourished by faith.
4. So shall you delight in the Lord, and He will give you what your heart desires.
5. Commit your way to the Lord, and trust in Him and He will act.
6. And He will reveal your righteousness like the light, and your judgments like noon.
7. Wait for the Lord and hope for Him; do not compete with one whose way prospers, with a man who executes malicious plans.
8. Desist from anger and forsake wrath; do not compete only to do evil.
9. For evildoers shall be cut off, and those who hope for the Lord-they will inherit the land.
10. A short while longer and the wicked man is not here, and you shall look at his place and he is not there.
11. But the humble shall inherit the land, and they shall delight in much peace.
12. The wicked man plots against the righteous and gnashes his teeth at him.
13. The Lord will scoff at him because He saw that his day will come.
14. The wicked initiated war and bent their bow to cast down the poor and the needy, to slay those who walk on a straight path.
15. Their sword shall enter their heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16. The few of the righteous are better than the multitude of many wicked men.
17. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the Lord supports the righteous.
18. The Lord knows the days of the innocent, and their inheritance will be forever.
19. They will not be ashamed in time of calamity, and in days of famine they shall still be satisfied.
20. For the wicked will perish, and the enemies of the Lord are like disappearing light on the plains; they are consumed in smoke, yea they are consumed.
21. A wicked man borrows and does not pay, but the Righteous one is gracious and gives.
22. For those blessed by Him will inherit the land, and those cursed by Him will be cut off.
23. From the Lord a mighty man’s steps are established, for He delights in his way.
24. If he falls, he will not be cast down, for the Lord supports his hand.
25. I was young, I also aged, and I have not seen a righteous man forsaken and his seed seeking bread.
26. All day long he is gracious and lends, and his seed is due for a blessing.
27. Shun evil and do good, and dwell forever.
28. For the Lord loves justice, and He shall not forsake His pious ones; they will be guarded forever, but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29. The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell forever in it.
30. The righteous man’s mouth utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks judgment.
31. The law of his God is in his heart; his feet do not falter.
32. The wicked man watches for the righteous man and seeks to put him to death.
33. The Lord shall not leave him in his hands, and He shall not condemn him [the righteous] when he [the wicked] is judged.
34. Hope to the Lord and keep His way; He will exalt you to inherit the land, and you will witness the destruction of the wicked.
35. I saw a wicked man, powerful, well-rooted as a native who is fresh.
36. And he passed away and behold! he is not here, and I sought him and he was not found.
37. Observe the innocent and see the upright, for there is a future for the man of peace.
38. But transgressors were destroyed together; the future of the wicked was cut off.
39. But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord, their stronghold in time of distress.
40. The Lord helped them and rescued them; He rescued them from the wicked and saved them because they took refuge in Him.
