An Interesting Accident Ahead of the Bar Mitzvah


mdanA number of hours before the bar mitzvah of a son of Rebitzen Yehudit Yosef, a daughter of HaGaon HaRav Shlomo Amar Shlita and daughter-in-law of Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Yosef, she was involved in a vehicular accident.

The other vehicle was driven by none other than Yossi Celton, the personal driver of Shas leader Aryeh Deri. The accident occurred at about 10:30AM Monday morning (26 Shevat 5774) near the bus depot in Ramot. Deri’s driver was transported to Shaare Zedek Hospital with light injuries and Rebitzen Yehudit Yosef was uninjured.

The accident occurred on the day of the bar mitzvah of the grandson of both the Rishon L’Tzion and his predecessor.

  1. nothing is coincidence & every tragedy has a wake-up call message straight from Hashem. BUT B”H this was not a horrific tragedy.

    if we all do teshuva together-on all levels from frum to reform etc…-as a nation then we will be able to wave good bye to the tzaros in klal yisroel
