BDE: Israeli Rav, Father Of 8, Dies Of COVID At Age 45


Rav Yariv Shimon Aloni, a Chabad shaliach and the Rav of Kfar Yonah, passed away of the coronavirus on Thursday at Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera at the age of 45.

After Rav Aloni, who was not vaccinated for unknown reasons, contracted COVID, his condition deteriorated rapidly and he was hospitalized. He was ventilated on Erev Rosh Hashanah and the doctors resuscitated him three times over Yom Tov as they fought for his life. On Thursday, he lost the battle and succumbed to the virus.

Over 20 years ago, Rav Aloni became a ba’al teshuvah while living in Miami, Florida, dedicating his life to Torah and shelichus. He eventually settled in the central Israeli city of Kfar Yonah, where he served as the Chabad shaliach and Rav of the city and established a shul.

Sadly he left behind a wife and eight children, the oldest of whom is only 12.

Yehi Zichro Baruch.

  1. Akivae…..The Israeli Health Ministry has already purchased tens of thousands of doses of Regeneron and is has been used on a limited basis in nursing homes and elderly care facilities. However, it has not yet been released it for mass use by the HMOs who treat many Covid patients at home. Doctors have also been able to administer it in hospitals but the need for monitoring has limited its widespread use thusfar.

  2. Bobby:
    He would say it was my time to go.
    While the frail 116 year old who recently beat covid was supposed to live.
    “Ki byodcha nafshos hachayim”….

  3. He didnt die of covid he was murdered in the hospital like all the others supposedly dying of covid, ivermectin costs less than $1 and works 100% of time

  4. According to a recent Dr. Zelenko interview (with Del Bigtree today), Netanyahu also ordered over two million doses of hydroxychloroquine from Inda, which is sitting in Israeli warehouses – unavailable to the public.

    Unfortunately, the rates of fatality from the ECMO machines is very high. The alternative health channels numerously have been reporting that this is ineffective and ill-suited protocol and it should be treated in any of several other ways, including simple vitamins and supplements. These hospitals are pushing a ‘cult narrative’ and decreeing a furtherance of needless maiming and death of the country’s populace – as well as leading much of the rest of the world astray.

    Bourla of the fizzing Pfizer corporation that he directs, and coerces others astray from, should have a good look at his own vial covid vials — which he undoubtedly also didn’t have injected into himself and exile himself far away from society.
