yartzeit candleYWN has learned of the petira of the Route 59 accident victim, Alta Sheindel Mashinsky A”H, 18, a daughter of one of the pillars of chessed in the Monsey community, Rabbi Yosef Mashinsky Shlita.

The nifteres was critically injured by a vehicle on Wednesday night and Hatzolah paramedics transported her to Westchester Trauma Center where she has been fighting for her life. Due to the seriousness of  her condition, the Skulener Rebbe Shlita instructed the family to add the name Alta as Jews around the world were being mispallel for her.

Levaya information and additional details to follow.

  1. Oy,Oy, Oy!
    ברוך דיין האמת
    Reb Yosef Shlita suffered nebech so many שווערע נסיונות. Ribono Shel Olam גענוג שוין.
    מי שאמר לעולמו די יאמר לצרותינו די.
    Please טאטע אין הימעל, enough already! How many more בקרובי אקדש קרבנות do you need!?
    זאל שוין קומען משיח במהרה.

  2. BD”E – Tragic. We cannot fathom the family’s sense of loss.

    At the risk of sounding insensitive, a small lesson in dikduk is in order. A man is niftar, while a woman is niftarah. The deceased man is called a/the niftar, while a/the deceased woman is the nifteres. (You not say, she was nifteres.) The body of the article reads correctly, but the headline needs correcting.
