Identities Released Of The Breslov Bochrim Killed in the MVA in Holland


The two Breslov chassidim who were R”L killed in a motor vehicle accident in Amsterdam have been identified as Shmuel Langelban, 19, a citizen of the United States who was living in Yerushalayim and 16-year-old Nosson Druk, a resident of Yerushalayim.

The vehicle they were traveling in was heading from London to Amsterdam as they were members of the Shuvu Banim kehilla and were going to visit with their rebbe, Rabbi Eliezer Berland Shlita.

Two other chassidim, Israeli residents, survived the crash and are in serious condition. Their families have been notified.

The tzibur is asked to be mispallel for:

נתן בן שרה מלכה יגלניק

יהודה בן חווה בדיחי בתוך שאר חולי ישראל

  2. The Amsterdam Kehilla is paying for one of the bodies to be taken to EY. The collection is for the other one.
    The driver was a 17 year old, driving without license. He is now fighting for his life in hospital H’ Yishmor. He will r.l. face arrest and imprisonment for reckless driving.

  3. As we are preparing for the funeral which will take place this evening at 6:30 in Israel, there are years in my eyes as I see the baseless rechilus continues, which as chazal say is a leading cause of our tragedies.
    As many lies in media which are quoted and requoted time and time again, the driver was the 20 year old shmuel who was killed, a tzaddik who did not do any wreckless driving. So before this last comment gets quoted in other places let’s say ENOUGH! end this sick disease call lashon harah, rechilus, and sinaas chinam which is taking the lives of so many of our precious neshamas.

    There were other mistake in the newss as they were not driving from London and the injured boy is ben Odelia not ben Chava but those don’t matter nearly as much as the mistakes that cause pain that even yom kippur is not mechaper until one asks personal mechilah and if said in public like the internet the false perception which was caused needs to be fixed. Oyyyy “achain nodah hadavar” when will these tragedies end?
    Boruch Hashem the injured are ok and will be at the funeral in Israel today.
    Thank you again YWN for publishing
    my words.

    May we hear only bishorot tovot.

  4. Perhaps now this Rav will send all the men home to their wives, children, and yeshivas, and send all the bucherim home to their families and Yeshivos to continue their learning. And we should see Geulah Shelaimah and Refuah Shelaimah in Klal Yisroel.
