Geulah Devorah Leah Grumach, whose family was active in reconnecting Jews with their heritage in Israel and India, passed away on Wednesday, 24 Adar II 5774.
She was 10 months old.
Her parents R’ Mordechai and Libi Grumach are active in the Jewish community of Hampi, a village in India’s northern Karnataka state, and with the Israeli backpackers who frequent its old city ruins.
Her grandparents are Rabbi Shmuel and Ruth Grumach, the Chabad Shluchim in the central Israeli town of Beit Dagan which neighbors the chassidic village of Kfar Chabad.
A month ago she was flown to Israel to receive medical treatment for Candida, a fungal infection that caused an irregular digestive system. She then returned to India, where her parents were preparing to host a large Pesach seder next month.
In the last few days her situation worsened. In a message to his friends on Tuesday night, her father wrote: “Chassidim, add good things that we should be able to sleep back at home… Devorah Leah Geulah bas Libi Chana.”
The family is raising money to have their daughter flown to Israel for burial, to donate, click here.
