Just hours after burying 8-year-old Avigdor Krasny A”H, who was tragically killed in the Shmini Atzeres fire in Flatbush, the parents are asking Klal Yisroel to please be Mispallel for their son, 4-year-old Yitzchok Issac ben Chana.
Yitzchok Issac was transferred on Sunday night from the burn unit in Staten Island, to Long Island Jewish Children’s Hospital, and remains on life support. His condition has not improved, and doctors fear for his life. The Misaskim organization which has taken a leading role in helping the family in their time of need, was contacted during the night by the family to arrange for the father and his close friends to be rushed to his child’s bedside. They also quickly arranged for a Minyan to go to the Kosel to be Mispallel during the night on behalf of the child.
Additionally, 18-month-old Etel bas Chana remains in critical condition on a respirator in the Staten Island Burn Unit. As we post this article (Monday morning), doctors remain concerned, and are considering moving her to a different hospital as well.
Leading Rabbonim are calling on the Tzibur to help the family in their time of need, as they are desperately in need of financial assistance. Additionally, funds are desperately needed for the landlord of the home, a choshuva yungerman with 13 children who lost practically everything in this tragic fire.
R’ Yaakov Krasny is a member of the kollel in the Mirrer Yeshiva in Flatbush. As one leading Gadol told YWN “they are a couple with unparalleled Yiras Shomayim.
