With great sadness, pain and shock we inform you of the untimely passing of Mrs. Chani Segal OBM, a dedicated and devoted Shlucha in Israel and mother of 9 children. She was 40 years old.
Chani (nee Hendel) worked along with her husband Rabbi Eliyahu Segal in spreading judaisim as Shluchim with Chabad of Rishon LeTzion.
After not feeling well before Yom Kippur, a terrible illness was discovered. Together, communities in Israel raised funds to help bring her to a hospital in the United States to undergo emergency treatment.
Late last night came the tragic news of her passing.
She is survived by her husband Eli and their nine children, the youngest of which is just a year and a half old.
She is also survived by her parents, Rabbi Zalman Eliyahu and Rochel Hendel, and her siblings; Nechama Dina Deitsch (Petach Tikva, Israel), Levi Hendel (Crown Heights), Mendy Hendel (Crown Heights), Shmulik Hendel (Kfar Chabad, Israel), Yossi Hendel (Beer Sheva, Israel), Devorah Leah Zilbershtrom (Tzfas, Israel), Sholom Dovber Hendel (Or Yehuda, Israel) and Levi Hendel (Marine Park, NY).
The Levaya will take place today, Tuesday, and will be passing by 770 at around 4:00pm. It will then proceed to Israel and Wedneday burial will take place in Tzfat.
