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.
