Rav Shimon suffered dreadful pain during the past year but he never complained and continued with his work and routine  as usual with no-one around him aware of his suffering.

Tuesday evening Parshas Eikev was a regular evening.  Neither his wife nor any of his children who were with him at home realized what was going on. No-one felt that the Malach Hamaves had come to take  Reb Shimon's pure soul. Quietly, as he had lived all his life, his soul left his body and soared upwards.  In the morning his son awoke to hear his mother's heartbroken cries as she stood by her husband's bed.

 

Ten days after Tisha B'Av.   HaRav HaTzaddik Reb Shimon, the author of the well known sefer "Mishkan Hashem" on the Mishkan and its keilim, passed away. He left behind a sefer  which explains, with the help of excellent pictures and precise details, all about the various keilim in the Mishkan as well as the Bigdei Kehuna.  During the shiva unbelievable stories were related about him, he had succeeded in hiding his greatness from even his closest family. They had noticed little things here and there but were unaware of his true lofty spiritual level.  At his levaya his close friend HaGaon Rabbi Michel Stern, the Rav of Ezras Torah, sobbed – we often had differences of opinions whilst learning together and we used to go to Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita for a decision and even when Rav Chaim originally decided against Rav Shimon's opinion, Rav Shimon in his brilliance and depth, succeeded in persuading Rav Chaim to change his mind.

 

Slowly but surely the stories came in, stories about his righteousness including his tremendous devotion to those in pain.  He would wash, clean, dress and feed the sick – no job was too difficult for him if it enabled him to ease another's pain. Even those sorry individuals that no-one else was prepared to care for, benefitted from the loving care of Reb Shimon.

 

All his years Reb Shimon lived in dire poverty but that did not prevent him from doing chessed with others.  In his own home there was literally nothing but that didn't deter him from helping to relieve the financial situation of others.  He was extremely wise and he used that wisdom for the benefit of others whilst he himself needed nothing.

He was well aware of his family's suffering and constantly tried his best to alleviate the situation but rarely succeeded in doing so, but his spirits never failed and he accepted the situation with love knowing that it was decreed from Above.  However difficult his situation was and however heavy his debts, his strong belief carried him through and enabled him to remain positive and happy. Even at times when the family was forced to move apartments time after time due to debts it didn't stop him from giving of himself and his time to others who were suffering, whether children, youngsters or adults – he was there for them all.

 

Now we need to be there for his family.  Now we need to open our hearts and to set up a fund for his widow and orphaned son, to ensure that they will be provided for.  It is our mitzvah and we will not overlook it, and he, from his place in the World Above, he will do his share and beseech on High for all those who help him family.
