    Two girls from Boro Park were R”L killed when the vehicle they were traveling in collided with a tractor trailer. The accident occurred on 26 Menachem Av, the night between Monday and Tuesday. The fatal accident occurred in Arizona.

    Two girls were killed and two others sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The girls were on vacation when a vehicle veered from the opposite lane, crashing into them.

    The names of the victims OB”M are Hindy Spira and Raizel Morgenstern.

    Misaskim has been working through the night with the families in Boro Park, and tell YWN that a private jet has been arranged to fly the deceased to NY for the Levayos.

    UPDATE: One occupant of the vehicle is Miriam bas Gittel, who has multiple fractures – including a spinal fracture. She is the daughter of Rabbi Yanky (Jack) Meyer, the founder of the Misaskim Organization. Please be Mispallel for her as she needs Rachamei Shomayim.

    Rabbi Yanky Meyer gave the following statement to YWN: “I ask everyone to spread the word that my daughter is not the only one injured. Please say Tehillm for Faiga Sarah bas Bracha Chaya, and for the families that are suffering from this great tragedy that they should have the strength to pull through this tough time”.

    1. My heart goes out to them: What a bitter & sad tragedy not only to the families and school mates of the beautiful girls but also to the rest of Klall Yisroel etc. JUST A SUGGESTION that: Perhaps it’s time to suggest that it’s time that “we” all MUST improve our Tznius (not them ז”ל) as the Pasuk says כִּי ד’ אֱלֹהֶיךָ מִתְהַלֵּךְ בְּקֶרֶב מַחֲנֶךָ לְהַצִּילְךָ וְלָתֵת אֹיְבֶיךָ לְפָנֶיךָ “וְהָיָה מַחֲנֶיךָ קָדוֹשׁ וְלֹא יִרְאֶה בְךָ עֶרְוַת דָּבָר וְשָׁב מֵאַחֲרֶיךָ” we see from this that if there is a lack of Tznius than Chas VeSholom there might be tragedies, as it happened here. May Hashem give all the families a true נחמה and be Zoche to the Geulah very soon.May all their neshamos have an Aliya ת.נ.צ.ב.ה. and for us we’ll try improving at least something small in our Tzniut..

      NOTE: there are those Poskim who say that that a Jewish women should not be driving a car, because it attracts attention, and thats a lack of Tzniut*
      א)*אנחנו חייבים לשפר הצניעות, והיות ויש בניהוג “קאר” חוסר צניעות של ממש לנשים, שהרי אסרו נהיגה driving לנשים, והעיקר משום חוסר צניעות, וכל כבודה בת מלך פנימה. *וכן פסקו “שאסור” הג”ר מנשה קליין האדמו”ר מאונגוואר זצ”ל (שו”ת משנה הלכות יב ש) *והגר”ש וואזנר זצ”ל (שו”ת שבט הלוי ד א) *והגר”מ גרוס שליט”א. הם טוענים שהדבר מבליט את האשה וגורם משיכת תשומת לב רבה. *גם טוענים שישנה בעיה בלימוד נהיגה עם מורה גבר. *גם טוענים טענה נכונה שאין עליה שום קושיות, שהדבר דומה לרכיבה על סוס שנאסר לאשה ע”פ שו”ע. *גם טוענים שהדבר גורם סכנה של תאונות דרכים – ע”פ הסטטיסטיקה, נשים גורמות הרבה יותר תאונות מגברים. *גם מרן שר התורה הגר”ח קניבסקי שליט”א שאסור לאשה אף בשעת הדחק לנהוג ברכב משום איסור של לא ילבש אשה שמלת גבר
