Very sad news. Len Traubman who was a friend of Service Space passed away unexpectedly on October 4th. He and his wife, Libby Traubman, started the Jewish Palestinian Living Room Dialogue and were mentors for peacemakers all over the world. They were guests on an Awakin Call a couple of years ago and participated in calling in questions for other guests. Len frequently said, " An enemy is someone whose story you haven't heard yet". A great light and peacemaker has left our world.

    I had just begun to make Len's acquaintance, thanks to Aryae's leadership for setting up a Global Community Garden. Indeed, a great light has left our world. May his legacy continue with the work of many that he inspired!

    What a special spirit. Our deep condolences to Libby and the rest of the family. Will be holding them in my heart and prayers. Much gratitude to you and Aryae for introducing ServiceSpace to the Traubmans and vice versa.

    Thank you for this unexpected news, Wendy. I remember Len's remarkable kindness of heart and spirit, and his way of supporting so many others. What a gift his presence was to so many. "An enemy is someone whose story you haven't heard yet" is a beautiful quote, indeed.

    Thank you for letting us all know, Wendy. I've never met Len (in fact, I've never met so many ServiceSpace people who have greatly touched my life with their ideas, words and deeds :) but I've been moved and inspired by his dialogue work, co-hosted with his wife, and have felt connected to him through the Awakin Calls community. And I've had the privilege of witnessing the questions he used to send in for our weekly Awakin Call guests (at the back-end, during the live call), and have always thought them to be deeply insightful. I thought of him recently, with a smile, when he sent in a Q to ask Diana Beresford-Kroeger on 28th Sep, and it's quite unexpected to now hear he's moved on from this worldly plane. Almost expect him to continue to send in questions every week...Sending prayers and maitri for his wife and family and gratitude for having connected virtually.

    Len was a great peacemaker, mentor to other peacemakers all over the world, inspiration to so many of us who were privileged to know him, and a dear and generous friend.

    When he appeared to me in a dream a couple of days after he passed away, I could see that he was busy organizing a dialogue among people in this world, people in the next world, and the angels! :)

    May his memory be a source of comfort to Libby, to his family, and a light to us all.

    Dear Wendy, I heard about this just yesterday and was very saddened to hear of his unexpected passing. Len's special spirit and contributions will be missed. May he rest in peace.

    Aww, I'd known Len and Libby through the Foundation for Global Community. Sad to see his light pass. Hopefully the Dialogues group will still continue.

    So sorry to hear of Len's passing. What amazing work he and Libby did in this world to foster peace and mentor peacemakers. My deep condolences to Libby and all who knew Len.

    Aryae, thank you so much for sharing your dream. That helps a lot and is truly what I imagine him doing! It's hard not to shed tears, but really they're tears revealing the depth of his love and compassion and how cherished he made me and so many others feel. I'd like to say that he will not be missed because we will be taking up his mantle and living his spirit so fully.
