7 victims’ funeral to take place in Jerusalem
The seven Sassoon family children from Brooklyn who perished on Friday night at a fire in their home will be laid to rest in Jerusalem at 3:30 p.m.
On Sunday a special prayer in their memory was held at a synagogue in Brooklyn, and their caskets were then flown to Israel on an El Al plane.
The family’s mother, Gail Sassoon, and daughter Tzipora, are still hospitalized.
