WATCH: Levaya Of Azan Family Z’L Held In Flatbush On Monday Night



The Levaya for the members of the Azan Family that were R”L killed in the Monday morning fire was held on Monday night in Flatbush.

Thousands of people lined Avenue T in Flatbush, as Misaskim vehicles carrying the four Niftarim were slowly driven in front of the Shevet Achim Shul near East 7 Street.

A few Kapitlach (chapters) of Tehillim were recited, followed by Kaddish. No Hespeidim (eulogies) were said. The bodies of Mrs. Aliza Azan A”H (39) – the mother of Moshe Azan Z”L (11), Yitzchak Azan Z”L (7), Henrietta Azan A”H (3) were then slowly driven away as heart-piercing screams and crying could be heard. Grown men and women openly shed tears as this unfathomable tragedy continued to unfold.

The Niftarim will be flown on a midnight flight to Eretz Yisroel for the Levaya and Kevura – see image below for details.

Meanwhile, Tehillim is needed for the injured who remain in critical condition.

The father, Yosef, courageously saved the lives of two other children – who are listed in critical condition. He attempted once more to enter the inferno to rescue his wife and three children, but was unable to. He too is listed in critical condition, suffering burns and smoke inhalation.

Please continue to say Tehillim for Shilat bas Louza Aliza (16) who is critical, Daniel ben Louza Aliza (15) who is critical, and Yosef ben Ahuva Masuda – the father who is critical.

  1. I think it’s time for us to do some retrospection. If you were to search for all the tragedies that happened and never mind the antisemitism and the fear of nuclear weapons etc. you have to be heavily sudated not to feel the galus and to yearn for Moshiach which will put a stop to our tzaros. But what do we do either we snore so loud that we don’t hear the shrill cries of our brothers and sisters who are suffering whether it’s physical emotional pain. Here and Israel it’s absolutely mind boggling!!! Rabosai WAKE UP!!!!! Do teshuva get real! Stop hiding from yourself and Hashem !!!Learn Mussar every day with a consistency and hopefully this mussar will touch people’s hearts and will be a zechus to the deceased that have died such a dreadful death to atone for our sins!!!

  2. I am a frum lady and decided to have a chat the other day to my neighbour who is a non Jew. Hakadosh Boruch Hu loves all of His creations and we were all put here for a reason. I was shocked to discover what a wake up call that discussion had on me. We all know it, but to hear it from someone not from the same background etc as us then it hits the heart. Basically Hakadosh Boruch Hu is angry at us and we are not doing teshuva. So He needs to take a Korban. And He did. Not just one.
