Remembering Nadiv Kehaty

Nadiv and his four children.

Yesterday I attended the funeral of my dear friend Nadiv Kehaty.

Only 30 years old, a committed husband, and the father of four young children, his sudden passing is an unspeakable tragedy.

Nadiv could be best described as something of a human sun. He would carry a bright energy into every room he entered and share warm personal words with each person present.

As I recall the time we spent together, as roommates in yeshiva over 10 years ago and throughout the following years, I can’t bring to mind a single memory of Nadiv in which he is without a beaming smile on his face.

On these pages, I am used to conveying ideas and observations, but today my message is personal. Nadiv was a special soul, of the kind that make our people great, and I am blessed to be among those who were touched by his light.

A fund has been established to provide for his young family’s needs. Please contribute generously.

    We can all learn from him to fully “live” and maximize the time we have here by treasuring our families and relationships. May Nadiv’s family and all of Israel be comforted for this tremendous loss.
