Readers around the world were moved last week by the story of Rebbetzin Baila Porush, a 52-year-old mother of 6 who was killed by COVID-19. She was a beloved and spiritual individual, who accepted her many challenges with a sense of positivity. Her death was particularly shocking because she had been in good condition, then in a matter of minutes, deteriorated so rapidly that she lost her life.
In a shocking turn, her husband Rabbi Tzvi Porush has now passed away as well. A video of Rabbi Porush at his wife’s levaya circulated on Thursday, as he said his hesped from the inside of an ambulance.
Now 6 children, 4 of whom are still behind, are left to mourn. It is noteworthy that the family was still recovering from a tragedy last year in which one of their siblings passed away suddenly.
Funds are being raised to help the remaining members of the Porush family navigate the long road ahead: Basic expenses, and all the other things that living parents would provide. Any and all donations are much appreciated.
