Nichum Aveilim

Question:

Shalom Harav I like to send a text to a rabbi who is sitting shiva who just lost his son since I can’t attend being too far what’s the best way I can express it on text please & I want the Hebrew part that everyone sais it b4 leaving the shiva house as well.
Please thank you

Answer:

You can write whatever you feel would be a comfort to the Rabbi, after that the text that is usually used before taking leave of the avel for the Askenazim it is “Hamakom yinachem eschem b’toch shar aveili T’zion v’Yerushalayim”. The Sefardim say either “Min hashomayim tenuchamu” or “Tenuchamu min hashomayim”

Best Wishes
