Frada Bennantan a”h


candle-small6It is with sadness that we report the passing of 9-year-old Frada Bennantan a”h of Yerushalayim this evening.  

Frada was a daughter of Rabbi and Mrs. Meechael BenNatan of Betar, both originally from Baltimore.

Rabbi BenNatan is a son of Mrs. Janet BenNatan, and Mrs. Rivka BenNatan is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Simcha Retter and a granddaughter if Mrs. Jacob Boehm.

Rabbi BenNatan is a member if the Yeshivas Mir kollel and a leader of the Betar English-speaking community, which was thrown into mourning upon the news of Frada’s petirah.

The levaya will take place in Yerushalayim on Wednesday.

Umacha Hashem dimah mei’al kol ponim.

  1. Baruch Dayan Emes. They are such special people. May Hashem give them strength to continue their chessed, and a refuah shelaimah to Yona ben Rivka also.

  2. BDE so sad, it brings tears to my eyes & cheeks.

    Whats the story? how did this tragedy occur to such a nice family? anyone know?

    May her neshama have an aliya & may he family only be with happiness

  3. to #5

    every story & tragedy has a tragic wake-up call message from Hashem, why the tragedy occurred. sometimes its due to lack of Achdus in klal yisroel other times its due to klal yisroel not doing teshuva with endless tzaros etc… many other reasons why tragedies occur.

    BUT before a tragedy occurs EVERYTHING is taken into perspective by Hashem i.e. anyone that will be affected by it is accounted for before Hashem does something, so if its because her neshama completed her mission in this world, the parents & all relatives & friends etc…must also be on the level to handle the test of losing a child R”L

    May we never experience these tragic tzaros anymore & not need them anymore to bring us to teshuva & Mashiach

    May her neshama have an aliya

  4. fraydie was sick for most of her life and she lived 8 years more than the doctors predicted. She was loved by her family and her community.
