Breslev Israel and Emuna Outreach mourn the tragic death of Rav Shalom Arush's 18-month old granddaughter, Feigie Chana ob"m, daughter of Shimon and Daniella Arush from Jerusalem. Shimon, driving home last night from the Baba Sali's yahrtzeit celebration in Netivot, was involved in a head-on collision. The baby suffered a head injury and was killed. The rest of the family - the father, mother and two siblings - are currently hospitalized in Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon.
Please pray for:
Rav Arush's son - Shimon Machlouf ben Miriam Varda, who is in serious condition and now being operated on.
Rav Arush's daughter inlaw - Daniella bat Zehava, who is in advanced stage of pregnancy and in moderate condition.
Rav Arush's grandchildren - Nachman ben Daniella and Miriam bat Daniella, also in moderate condition.
At the time of this writing (Sunday 12:15 PM Israel), the funeral of Feigie Chana is taking place in Jerusalem.
With broken hearts hearts, we extend our deepest condolences to our esteemed and beloved rabbi and spiritual guide, the international beacon of emuna, Rav Shalom Arush shlit'a and Rebbetzen Miriam Arush.
Please pray for the full and speedy recovery of Shimon, Daniella and their two children. May Hashem comfort them in this most painful time among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem, amen.
Update, 9 PM, Israel: We just learned that Daniella has given birth to a baby boy. Shimon has undergone two operations and is still in critical condition. Please continue praying for the family's recovery.
In the name of the Arush family, we thank everyone who has sent condolence emails.
