R’ Dovid Frost z”l


candle-small5[Levaya info below.] It is with great sadness that we report the tragic passing of Rabbi Dovid Frost z”l of Lakewood, NJ,¬†who was niftar a short while ago after succumbing to injuries he suffered following a terrible car accident last week.

Rabbi Frost, his wife Devorah and their family had spent the first Shabbos Chanukah in Hunter, NY, and was returning to Lakewood when the accident occurred in Upstate, NY. He and his wife and children had been taken to nearby hospitals to be treated. R’ Dovid underwent knee surgery, but various resulting complications required further medical intervention. His condition deteriorated and his neshama returned to its Creator today.

R’ Dovid was 37.

Levaya details will be posted when they are finalized.

R’ Dovid is survived by his wife, Mrs. Devorah Frost, and six children.

Umacha Hashem dimah mei’al kol ponim.

Levaya info: The levaya will take place tomorrow morning, at 9 o’clock, at Beth Medrash Govoha, 617 6th Street, in Lakewood, NJ. Kevurah will take place at the bais hakevaros in Woodbridge, NJ.

  1. We are heartbroken beyond words.
    Devorah, Hashem should give you the strength to deal with this. We are all hear with you. May you only have strength and bracha and be able to face this nisayon.
    Boruch dayan emes.

  2. known askonim who are experts in medical issues begged them to move the patients to New York, but their advice was vetoed by a choshuv person.

    Dovid Frost was completely conscious an in full charge until somebody decided to operate on his knee in Albany. He never woke up from the operation.

  3. I am amazed at some of the ridiculous comments made. Hashem wanted his neshama and we cannot ask any more questions. Baruch Dayan Haemet

  4. Sinna:

    What Hatred was posted that could have caused his tragic death? Was it something about him?

    Please elaborate, you sound very bitter.

  5. #12. He was taken to Albany Medical Center, not Harris Hospital or some other small local hospital. From what I read the accident happened near exit 23 of the thruway which means it wasn’t far from Albany. You asked why he wasn’t transported downstate? Maybe his condition wasn’t stable enough.
