It is with the deepest regret that we announce the passing of Rabbi Solomon Maimon, Rabbi Emeritus of Sephardic Bikur Holim Congregation in Seattle. Rabbi Maimon was a giant among men and was an iconic figure in the Seattle Sephardic Community. He helped to found the Sephardic Adventure Camp in Seattle, kept generations of young Sephardic Jews connected to their community, and spoke with a love that could only come from an extraordinarily special man. He helped to teach thousands of students over a career that spanned decades, graduating as the first Sephardic Rabbi from Yeshiva University in 1944 and serving not only his own community, but dozens of others throughout the United States. Celebrating his 100th Birthday this year, he embodied what it meant to be a real, genuine Sephardic Rabbi and his loss is a loss for all of us.
The Rabbi is survived by his two sons Rabbi Abraham and Rabbi Michael Maimon. Funeral services will be held tomorrow Friday, September 27 at 9:30am at the Sephardic Brotherhood Cemetery located at 1230 N 167th St Seattle, WA.
Min HaShamayim Tenuhamu - May they be comforted from Heaven.
