Local rabbi’s daughter, granddaughter killed in Israel car crash
Los Angeles Rabbi Yisroel Adelman, owner of La Brea Kosher Market near Hancock Park, lost his only daughter in a car accident in Jerusalem on Friday.
Devorah Levenberg (neé Adelman) and her one-year-old daughter Aliza were killed instantly in a head-on collision in the Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood in Jerusalem.
Her husband, Moshe, was taken to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital in critical condition. The driver of the car, who was giving the family a ride, was in moderate condition at Sha'arei Zedek hospital.
The funeral was held in Jerusalem Friday afternoon, as it is a Jerusalem custom to hold funerals the day of death. The Adelmans, who reside in Hancock Park, have asked the community to refrain from visiting for shiva on motzei Shabbat, or Saturday night.
Shiva will be held 331 N. Vista Ave; shacharis will be Sunday morning at 7:50, Monday - Thursday 6:15. The family will be resting from 2-4. Condolence emails can be sent to email@example.com.
