Shlomo Zakheim: Exemplar Of Chesed

Many of the speakers described the vast chesed that Reb Shlomo performed on a daily basis.
A line of ambulances. Dozens of ambulances and other emergency vehicles accompanied the hearse to JFK airport. Zakheim was buried on Har Hamenuchot in Jerusalem.

Even in his last stage of sickness Shlomo continued to help people by arranging and paying for their surgeries. Never did he question Hashem. In fact he was quoted as saying, “Thank you, Hashem, for giving me cancer!”

Shlomo was and should continue to be an inspiration to all. He taught us that there is nothing that we cannot do or achieve, that nothing is out of reach when we make the effort and believe in Hashem.

Shlomo was given a king’s honor as he left this world. Not only by the hundreds of Hatzalah buses and emergency vehicles that escorted the aron, closing Ocean Parkway and the Belt Parkway on the way to the airport. Not only from the roster of roshei yeshiva that attended his levayah. Not only from the fact that his aron passed HaRav Kanievsky’s house so he could be melaveh the meis. The true kavod was delivered by the thousands of individuals who felt touched by Shlomo and cried at the mere sight of his aron.

Reb Shlomo is survived by his mother, Rebbetzin Sarah Zakheim; his wife, Dr. Faygie Zakheim; his siblings, Moshe Zakheim, Mrs. Rachelle Klein, and Mrs. Devorah Hamada; and his children, Michal Klerer, Rabbi Azriel Zakheim, Ariella Weiss, Rachelli Levine, and Rabbi Moshe Zakheim; and many grandchildren.

Yehei zichro baruch.
