With great sadness and deep pain we inform you of the untimely passing of Chaya Spalter, OBM, a brave young girl who united and inspired many with her positivity. She was 11 years old.
After long and valiant battle against yeneh machlah, Chaya Spalter tragically passed away today, Sunday.
Chaya, 11, was a brave young girl who beat the illness once only for it to return a few years later.
Her illness brought many together and inspired them to take on new good deeds in the merit of her recovery.
A few short months ago, while on a helicopter ride, she was surprised by her school – Beis Chaya Mushka High School in Los Angeles, California – who waited on the rooftop to greet her as she flew over in a LAPD helicopter.
She is survived by her parents Rabbi Mendy and Hadassah Spalter, siblings Geny, Chana’le, Dovi, Moishy, Sarah Rochel and Levi Yitzchak.
She is also survived by her grandparents R’ Shmuel and Mirel Spalter – North Miami Beach, FL and Rabbi Ezra Schochet and his wife Batsheva.
The Levaya will take place tonight, Sunday at 8:45 PM at Yeshiva Ohr Elchonon Chabad in Los Angeles.
