    Dear Rabbi Machlis,
    Thank you so much for your kind hospitality and grace despite a difficult situation at the Shabbat meal on 22 October 2016. Your home opened to us on that day was such a blessing. Since returning home to Jersey (British Isles) our decree and prayer for you and your helpers has been that of Numbers 6:24-26.

    I had just read an article on Aish.com about the beloved Henny passing and giving her all to mankind. I feel blessed reading of her wonderful ways and that I have known her forever. May her beloved family and all the beloved people Henny helped find peace with the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
    The beloved memory of Mother Henny will live on forever in her children and the tens of thousands of people she looked after.
    I have tears flowing writing this just reding about a Bleassed woman of Zion that I never met but feel so close too. Mother Henny will be in my prayers.

    Two days ago I shared a story with a friend about Rebetzin Henny sharing stories of "compassion and patience loaded with love and emunah" with us in Toronto a few years ago. She had all of us riveted and just wanted to hear more and more from her.
    Then much to my surprise my friend shared with me of her passing. How painful.
    Our huge loss is also a space for us to fill.
    Reb'n Henny was one of the best 'mosaics' in the picture of my life.
    Her memory will be a blessing.
    To Rabbi Machlis and family, my condolences.
    May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

    To the Machlis Family, Sheyichu

    It is difficult to find the words to adequately express our profound sorrow and sympathy on the sad loss of your beloved wife, mother and grandmother Zecher Tzadeket Livracha. We were fortunate to meet the legendary Henny Machlis, the angel of chessed, when we visited our children, who had been your neighbors in Maalot Dafna. We also have enjoyed your occasional visit to Toronto, Rabbi Machlis. On both occasions we were struck with awe when witnessing or hearing of your extraordinary Hachnosat Orchim. We cannot even begin to imagine what the preparation of Shabbos and YomTov meals for so many on a constant basis must have entailed. But Rebbitzen Machlis' reputation goes beyond even her opening her home to any and all on a regular basis. The stories that have been told about her sensitivity to every Jew, her compassionate heart, her wisdom, her patience, her educating of less knowledgeable Jews - demonstrating to them the beauty and warmth of Yiddishkeit, make her and you, Rabbi Machlis - and your wonderful children who are continuing the tradition - true children of our founding father and mother, Avraham and Sarah. We would like to think that upon Rebbitzen Machlis' entrance to Gan Eden, she would have been warmly welcomed by none other than the formative patriarch and matriarch of our nation, who undoubtedly have and continue to derive enormous nachas from Rebitzen Machlis and from her family.

    Rabbi Yeruchum Levovitz, zt"l, wrote in a letter of consolation: "Death should be understood only as if one has moved from one city to another. This is the real truth." Your beloved wife, mother and grandmother has not died. She is alive. She has but moved away. As Rabbi Levovitz writes: "To the one who understands things more deeply, on the contrary, the deceased are now even closer to the living than when they were alive. For now there are no separations." The essence of a person is the spiritual, and Rebbitzen Machlis' neshama continues to live and exist. Nevertheless mourners still need to find comfort from the pain of physical separation. Only Hashem, the Master of Comfort, has in His treasure house the healing ingredients for those left behind to mourn. Our hope is that Hashem will open up His treasure house of comfort, and shower you with droplets of nechama to heal your saddened hearts.

    May your wife, mother and grandmother A"H, be a melitzah yosher for all of you and for all of Klal Yisrael and may the wonderful memories you have of her serve to sustain you.

    "HaMakom Yinachem Etchem BiToch Sha'ar Aveilei Tzion VeYerushalayim, v'lo tosifu lida'ava od."

    Yihi Zichra Baruch.

    With our heartfelt condolences and sympathy,

    We and our children had the great zechus to live in the same building in Yerushalayim as the Machlis family for 7 years. The extrordinary acts of chessed, tzidkus and ahavas yisrael radiating from the Machlis apartment were a true inspiration. They did what most people say "I would/should really do but cant..." Rebbetzin Machlis was a person that lived her life completely concerned with others. She was always, always giving - ruchniyus and gashmiyus, with all those around her, not just with the less fortunate but with anyone who had the zechus to come in contact with her. As neighbors we were always beneficiaries of their chesed and Torah and tried to reciprocate in a small way. She showered us with brachos and would always offer help and daven for her neighbors whenever we needed even a small thing. These noble qualities were absorbed by their children who each contain the unique quality of caring for others in a way that is clearly above the rest. While we learnt much Torah from Rabbi Machlis and consider ourselves talmidim, we are also talmidim of Rabbi and Rebbitzen Machlis in how to live life. Their respect and love for all Jews and all people no matter who they are or from what background is something we must all learn from. Rebbitzin Machlis was a true tzadekes whose every act and thought was lishem Shomayim. Yehi Zichra Baruch

    Our dear friend told us yesterday about the passing.
    We do not really know what to say.

    Our hearts are with you,

    To Rav Machlis and Children,

    This past week I learned that your wife and mother Henny has gone on to Shemayim, to be with Hashem in a new dimension. The news hit hard, and I can only imagine how much you miss her. Oh, for each of you to be deeply comforted by His Presence.

    Here I was asking someone if they knew when the rabbi from Jerusalem would be speaking in Toronto, and then I heard. But I thought Henny was on the upswing, I believed she was going to pull through and be restored to full health in this life. And now your family is without her at your side.

    That evening I slipped out early from amongst other guests, and walked home with tears and memories of this precious soul whose radiant joy and chesed touched so many of us. Today I ran into one of your local supporters, and he informed me that tomorrow would be Henny's Shloshim. How I wish I were there to be with you all in commemorating her life well lived.

    No words are adequate to express how I feel, or how much gratitude and respect I have for Henny, for your family.
