Following the recent petira of five people from the same street in Bnei Brak’s Kiryat Herzog neighborhood, an atzeres hisorarus was held in the community.
Rav Avraham Edri Z”L lived at 2 Kovlaski Street in the community and when he went to make a shiva call at his neighbor, Rav Avraham Liebowitz Z”L who was niftar, he collapsed and died. Rav Moshe Ravani Z”L lived at 25 Yigal Alon Street, and he was niftar along with two others in the neighborhood, both women; Mrs. Reimond Shukron A”H and Mrs. Rivka Wahab (והב) A”H, from Avramski Street.
As a result, an atzeres tefilla was called in the old sephardi shul in the community, located at 26 Abramski Street. HaGaon Rav Moshe Chizkiyahu, HaGaon Rav Zecharya Shalom and HaGaon Rav Eliyahu Rustami were among the speakers. Slichos followed including the blowing of the shofar.
