The Disaster in Brooklyn
האסון בברוקלין

Even as people failed to make sense of the seven deaths — the largest toll from a fire in New York City since 2007 — the mourners turned their thoughts to the mother who leapt out of her bedroom window and a sister who also somehow survived. “Mommy, Mommy, help me!” one neighbor heard Siporah cry as she stumbled outside.

In the absence of words, Mr. Sassoon said, the only antidote was faith.“There’s nothing to say,” he said. “There’s nothing to say. There’s only one way to survive this:complete and utter, total surrender. Surrender. That’s it.

The eldest child of eight children was saved with the mother
(1 of 8) 
 הילדה הגדולה משמנה ילדים ניצלה עם האם
שמה "צפורה"
(1 מ 8 )
Her name is Zipporah ("Bird")

Psalm 124.7

Our soul has escaped like a bird "Tzippor
 נַפְשֵׁנוּ כְּצִפּוֹר נִמְלְטָה

From the snare of the trappers, the snare has broken ("HaPach Nishbar) and we have escaped
מִפַּח יוֹקְשִׁים הַפַּח נִשְׁבָּר וַאֲנַחְנוּ נִמְלָטְנו 
(Mem 600)

The Trappers are awaiting us once again in the Diaspora.
It is time to escape  with the mother bird and ascend to the Land
 פח יוקשים ממתינים לנו בחוץ לארץ הזמן הגיע לעלות לארץ.
שלוח הקן

May their memories be blessed and their merits protect us!
יהיו זכרם ברוך!
