D. Lipsh / Beit Shemesh Israel

This is a tragedy of unbelievably horrific proportions…my stomach is physically nauseous looking at this photo….these children’s faces…. all dead. The pain is excruciating. Once again, after the initial utter shock and disbelief, I can feel myself go into that way too familiar automatic ‘numb-like’ self-protective mode, feeling it slowly enclosing around my heart. Once again I hear the hushed tones of strangers whispering; ‘we don’t ask questions’…’we cannot possibly understand’… ‘we are but a piece in G-D’s puzzle’….’they were holy souls’ etc..etc. Once again we scream out AD -MATI? UNTIL WHEN?!!! …and once again…we are answered by silence in… Read more »

psak: correct name is GILSOM GILA GAYLE bat TZIPORAH FRANCES
Guest
psak: correct name is GILSOM GILA GAYLE bat TZIPORAH FRANCES

The family’s Rav, Rav Cherba, has directed that for Gayle (THE MOTHER) all names be used that she is known by. Rav Cherba’s psak is to use these names: GILSOM GILA GAYLE bat TZIPORAH FRANCES and the daughter is TZIPORAH bat GAYLE She is named for her grandmother GILSOM (Arabic—a Syrian name) as are many of her cousins. Her husband calls her Gila. Her friends call her Gayle and her mother is Tziporah but everyone calls her by Frances. So if you want the most for your Tehillim readings go by Rav Cherba’s psak and use these: GILSOM GILA GAYLE… Read more »

shalom shalom shalom ………..
when we see all this horror we MUST do everything in our power to run from fights – even it we know we are right- run like from fire!
If someone is having a personal issue – DO NOT get involved with taking sides…….your taking sides only feeds the flames,
Flames emanating from fights destroys also!!!

Gayle needs our prayers to find the strength to deal with this if that is possible in any way. It’s beyond tragic

Does pointing fingers bring back these kids? Will it heal the mother once she knows about this loss? Point your fingers at a prayer book and pray for the family. That’s where fingers belong

where's the father ??????????????

where’s your bitachon?
these children were obviously very special.
let’s daven that the mother & sis survive.

Unspeakable.
Guest
Unspeakable.

Those 7 childrens memory should be kept alive. How many more people have to die in house fires? We get warnings all the time, families wiped out just for not investing in a $10 smoke detector on every floor and maintaining it, but it seems thawt nobody learns the lesson until tragedy strikes. I hope this spurs a movement for safety.

Guest
the daughter name is tziporah frances

Gayle went to a rav after Tziporah was born to ask him to tell Gabi to add this name and as far as I remember he told Gabi to do it.
it was very important to Gayle because its her mother’s name

I hope that this story really inspires others to install and check on their fire detectors..maybe discuss what to do Gd forbid their is a fire. Hope their very precious lives that where lost saves thousands of other precious lives. Please Gd give this family strength to carry on we are all joining in ur sorry , your loss is our loss…. Prayers are being sent their way ….

Put out the fire in your heart.
Guest
Put out the fire in your heart.

Seize every minute with your children for they r not yours they r gifts from HaShem and they belong to God. We r definitely getting very close to see mashiach. Let’s be ready!! Any fires burning in your heart. Any old resentment from the past towards family and friends? Forgive and let go. This is our wake up call. Pick up the phone and pursue peace. Don’t sit around and cry. Take action. Give these seven pure souls an Aliyah. lets bring mashiach now. It’s in our power. Don’t fight with your husband or kids. Pursue peace at all costs.
