Shuviel was a wonderful human being who touched all who know him with his sensitivity, gentleness, kindness, and wisdom. I had the privilege of having enjoyed his artistry as a musician and his humor.

Baruch Dayan Ha'emes. So sorry to hear about the untimely passing of R' Shuviel. I remember him from his performances in Baltimore along with his friends. His music was beautiful, deep and soulful, and he kept the Ladino taste going. Such a talented sweet man.

We met the Ma'aravi's in 1986, and became great friends with them sharing pregnancies, children, cookouts and holidays. It is never convenient to lose someone, never the right time. It is left to the survivors to muddle through. Shuvi was an incredible musician, a good father. I remember he held the babies and davened at the same time. I was saddened to see the news last week.

I treasure the times we davened together at the minyan at Congregation Chofetz Chayim in Tucson, Arizona. I knew he was special when I saw the Guitars of Pikesville bumper sticker. He was a gentle, giving of his insight, talented and wise man who was so respected, respectful and beloved in our minyan.

I have so many fond memories of Shuviel. I learned many things from him and will always remember playing music with him. His spirit is a light in this world that will not be dimmed by the loss of his physical presence.

Rabbi Shuviel Ma'aravi was my best friend at Malone College and my brother-in-law for 30 years, and he touched my life in many important ways. It's difficult to express the sorrow at his loss, and the shock of his recent passing two days ago. He treated me with tenderness, loyalty, respect and dignity and I was never in doubt of his unconditional love and support. There will never be a day in my life when I do not think of him and cherish the memories of his life.
