Tragedy: 35-Year-Old Yerushalayim Mother of Eight is Niftar


Mrs. Esther Kornfeld A”H, the wife of Rav Shimon Kornfeld, was niftar in Rambam Hospital in Haifa on Wednesday morning at the age of 35, after fighting a difficult illness. She is survived by her husband and eight children, with the youngest being a year old and the older, bar mitzvah.

In recent months many have davened for Esther bas Devorah, but to the dismay of her family and many acquaintances, this morning she returned her soul to her Creator following a continued decline in her condition.

The deceased A”H was initially treated in Jerusalem, but on the advice of medical professionals, she was transferred to Rambam Hospital in hopes of recovering from the disease.

Her father is Rabbi Tzvi Rand, one of the most important members of Kehillas “Yad Ezra”.

Her funeral began at Shamgar in Yerushalayim at 3:00PM and kvura was in Har Menuchos in Yerushalayim.
