Levaya Details: BD”E: Rafael ben Moshe

18

It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the petirah of Rafael ben Moshe, the young boy whose health struggles caught the attention and tugged at the heart of the entire Klal Yisroel.

Rafael was born with his intestines outside of his body and required surgeries immediately after birth. Miraculously, Rafael survived and spent several years being cherished by his family.

Unfortunately, Rafael;s condition required correction through more surgeries and he returned to surgery last week accompanied by the tefillos of Klal Yisroel all of whom poured out their hearts to daven for Rafael Shmuel ben Fraydel Miriam.

Though the surgery was a success Rafael’s vitals dropped and he was in critical condition for a few days before stabilizing slightly. Late last night, Rafael took another turn for the worse and returned his neshoma to its Maker early this morning. In his short time on earth, Rafael, with his sweet and childlike requests, was able to inspire hundreds and thousands of Jews to unite and daven and take on extra mitzvos as zechusim that will accompany him l’netzach.

The levaya will be held tomorrow morning at 9 A.M, in the Yeshiva Gedola of Montreal located on 6155 Deacon Road, Montreal, Quebec.

Shiva will begin in Montreal at 2525 Ekers, Montreal, Quebec.

  1. Wow!!! What a special neshama this world was zocheh to experience. His pureness in realizing Hashem as our creator and that all is in Hashem, was evident from the way he spoke. Ashrei yoladeto. Lucky are the ones who bore him and perfected his undiluted way of serving Hashem. Klal Yisroel is crying this loss as a personal korban tzibur. Baruch Dayan ha’emes

  2. Baruch Dayan HaEmet!
    I was so certain that against all odds he would pull through. So many Jews were rooting for him but Hashem said I want him with Me! So sad for us! It’s almost like when Nadav and Abihu were taken from our midst on day #1 of the mishkan. May Hashem shower his parents with His unyielding and infinite warmth and rachmanut and may he merit to stand up once again when the Mashiach comes and illuminate the world with his infectious smile yet again.

  3. BDE, he made this world a better place, now we all have to take over and continue his legacy. Tfila, Tzedaka, acts of kindness……..Leilu Nishmas Rafael Shmuel be Freida Miriam.

  4. Bd’e . A pure neshama. May he be. A meilitz yoisher for his mishpacha and all of klal yisroel.
    Any phone number to hook up to levaya????

  5. Baruch Dayan Haemes. He was a child who inspired so many to daven and do Mitzvos. His Neshoma should have an Aliya
