In a rare visit to Mea Shearim, Rav Dovid Lau, the Chief Rabbi of the State of Israel paid a shiva call to the family of Reb Dovid Krois, z’l, a Toldos Aaron chassid and father of nine, who lost his life in the Meron disaster on Lag B’Omer.

The father of Reb Dovid, z’l, Reb Shmuel Krois, related that on Friday, members of the family asked Rav Lau’s assistance at Abu Kabir in getting his son’s body released before Shabbos, adding that before Rav Lau showed up, nothing was getting accomplished and it was only Rav Lau’s personal intervention that allowed his son to be buried before Shabbos.

Although unusual for a state figure to visit Mea Shearim, a neighborhood where many people are against the state, the visit passed peacefully.

Chief Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef also has been paying shiva visits to the families of the Meron niftarim. Below are photos of him comforting the yesomim of Ariel Tzadik, z’l, of Jerusalem, who left behind five yesomim.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz also was menachem the Tzadik family and donated NIS 810 to the fund launched for the family.
