A young avreich and his wife, married 13 months ago, became the parents of quadruplets on erev Sukkos; three girls and a boy. All appeared healthy, B”H.
During the pregnancy, the couple was reportedly told they will be having twins and the birth of quadruplets came as a surprise.
The avreich’s parents are from Bnei Brak and his wife’s parents live in Yerushalayim. The quads were born in Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikvah a few hours before candle lighting for the first day of Sukkos. They have since been transferred to Schneider Children’s Hospital in the city for observation.
The avreich on Yomtov davened in Beit Knesset Ishei Yisrael in Bnei Brak on the first day of Yomtov, asking the gabbai to make a mi’sheberach for his four children. The young couple has yet to decide on names for the girls, which they hope will take place in the coming days.
A friend of the avreich told Kikar Shabbos News they are planning a large Bris to show hakoras hatov to HK”BH. The new mom remains in the hospital, and plans to take her four children and rest in Telshe Stone when they are released. She hopes that during her stay, she will also receive advice as to how to become an instant mother of four.
The girls weighed in at 1.5 kilograms (3.3 lbs.) at birth and the boy was 1.2 kilograms (2.6 lbs.).
