Chaya Hadar Jerufi, a young girl who bravely battled a terrible illness for the past few years, passed away on Monday, 11 Sivan, 5777.
She was 8.
Chaya Hadar was the daughter of Yisrael and Dina Jerufi of Rechovot, Israel.
She had been battling an illness for the past few years, and many around the world united to pray and recite Tehillim in her merit.
Sadly, the tragic news came on Monday morning that she had passed away.
On Erev Shavuos, her family had begun a special campaign in her merit, under the slogan “V’Elokim Yaanenu Bakol.”
“For more than five years we have been begging for the recovery of our Hadari,” her father Yisrael Jerufi wrote. “In recent days her condition has deteriorated, the tumor affects her spine and she is having difficulty talking and moving her hands and feet.
“Now more than ever, Hadar needs our prayers, and on the holiday of Shavuot we tear the heavens in prayer for Chaya Hadar bas Dinah for a complete recovery.”
She is survived by her parents, Yisrael and Dina Jerufi, and siblings Tehilla, Yossi and Adel.
She is also survived by her grandparents R’ Saadya and Shulamis Jerufi and R’ Menachem and Esther Sameach of Lod, Israel.
The levaya will take place today, Monday, in Rechovot, Israel.
The family is sitting Shiva at 19 Rechov Abarbenel, Rechovot.
