The Lakewood, NJ, community was hit with tragedy today with the sudden passing of Baila Brocha Sorotzkin a”h. She was just a half year old.
Earlier this afternoon, Baila Brocha appeared to be choking and Hatzolah was called to the Sorotzkin home on Sequoia Street. The baby was taken to the nearby Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus, where she passed away.
Baila Brocha was a daughter of Rabbi and Mrs. Chaim Dov and Sara Aliza Sorotzkin, beloved members of the Pine River community.
Her grandparents are Dr. and Mrs. Benzion Sorotzkin of Sea Gate, Brooklyn, and Rabbi and Mrs. Yisroel Gluck of Chicago, IL.
The sudden passing this afternoon of this young neshamah has plunged family, friends and the greater community into mourning.
The levayah will take place tonight, at 11 p.m., at Congregation Sons of Israel’s Holocaust Memorial Chapel, located at 613 Ramsey Street, off of East 7th Street, in Lakewood.
Umachah Hashem dimah me’al kol ponim.
The Lakewood community mourns in a spirit of לקו בכפלים, as just yesterday, a young mother, Mrs. Leah Eisdorfer a”h, 28, passed away in a tragic car accident in nearby Toms River, NJ.
May Hashem bring an end to Klal Yisroel‘s tzaros.
